Hennessy V.S.O.P. Privilege hosted a private dinner honoring 20 years of music by reggaeton and hip-hop artist, Ivy Queen, and her official album release for â€œVendetta.â€ The dinner was set in the private white room in the outside garden of the restaurant Dolores, But You Can Call Me Lolita.
The eveningÂ began with appetizers and Latino-inspired Hennessy Privilege V.S.O.P. drink menu and was followed by a 3-course dinner. As the main dish of the night was being served, the Queen raised her glass to give thanks to the team that made the event possible and to the people who helped make her dreams a reality as well as those who have continued to support her, like her husband, Xavier Sanchez.
As the dinner came to a close, Hennessy gave a Privilege Toast to honor Ivy Queen and her 20 years in the music industry. Later that same night, Team Hennessy also gifted her an engraved bottle of Hennessy V.S.O.P. Privilege to give tribute to her many accomplishments and for years to come.
When asked if she thought she would be where she is today, 20 years ago, she replied, â€œNo one ever thinks that theyâ€™ll be anywhere. Everything starts as a dream. An impulse in your heart that tells you that thatâ€™s what I want to do. And you dedicate yourself to do that. And when you put all your dedication and your heart in it, those will be the results.â€ She also mentioned her two-year old daughter and what she hoped for her daughterâ€™s future.
