Other music executives, including Roc Nation's senior vice president, Meg Harkins, and an Interscope/Geffen/A&M Records' music promotion executive, Karen Rait, have been encouraging attendees to wear white roses, according to Billboard.
Separately, Grammy organizers are considering having recording star Janelle Monae make a brief speech before introducing Kesha, who is set to perform the song "Praying," about forgiveness, according to two sources familiar with the plans. There is a discussion about having a choir of singers who have suffered abuse appear alongside her.
Grammy officials did not respond to requests for comment.
Senior music industry executives are also discussing how to distinguish their industry's advocacy efforts from Hollywood's, and whether there are other ideas for the Grammys that are more specific to the music industry.
