Grammy Awards 2019: William DuVall, Alex Sparrow check out Pre-Grammy lounge 

A week after pairing with Atlanta’s Icebox Diamonds and Watches for a pre-Super Bowl “luxury gift lounge,” GBK Productions teamed with STK for a “Pre-Grammy Lounge” at the W Hotel Westwood.

From Wander + Ivy single-serve wine to Hemp Hydrate water to one primary attraction, the massage monster dubbed the Kahuna Chair, celebs - including H.E.R. and Atlanta’s Chloe x Halle - mingled with an invite-only stream of visitors.

Atlanta’s William DuVall, the singer for Alice in Chains still remembered for his punk roots in Neon Christ, was spotted relaxing in the Kahuna Chair, while Russian singer-actor Alex Sparrow made the rounds and spread his charm.

Sparrow, recently seen on season three of Lifetime’s “Unreal” (he played Alexi), chatted for a few minutes about his love of ‘60s pop and the harrowing car crash that almost claimed his life six years ago (Sparrow had a stroke, triggered by a previously undetected hole in his heart).

But the chiseled performer, known in his native country for winning “The X Factor” in 2005 at the age of 17, is working on new music and hopes to bring it on tour.
