It's Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and Goldhouse is kicking it off with their A100 list, the definitive honor that recognizes the 100 APIs who have most significantly impacted American culture and society in the last year. This year 11 Filipinos made it on this prestigious list alongside some amazing Asian and Pacific Islander trailblazers who are at the forefront of this "New Gold Age."

The honorees are selected across industry categories and are voted on through a rigorous and comprehensive process with dozens of the nation’s top API nonprofit organizations, a panel of multicultural icons (including actress-singer Lea Salonga, General Atlantic Vice Chairman Ajay Banga, Panda Express Co-CEOs Andrew and Peggy Cherng, actor and activist Daniel Dae Kim, GLAAD CEO Sarah Kate Ellis, and Olympian Apolo Anton Ohno, among others), and hundreds of Gold House members who are each at the apex of their respective industries.

For the first time, Goldhouse will be celebrating the honorees in person at the inaugural Gold Gala on May 21st, 2022 in collaboration with Meta and Procter & Gamble. Stay tuned for that event recap on MYX, but for now, check out the full A100 list here and see which Filipinos made it on the list below.

To round things off Olivia Rodrigo took home three GRAMMYS for Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album, & Best Pop Solo Performance. In addition to Olivia Rodrigo, H.E.R., and Bruno Mars dominating their categories, GRAMMY nominee Saweetie dominated the red carpet. The Filipino-American femcee served two looks during the event.

While Olivia Rodrigo may have taken home three GRAMMYs and shut down the award show with her performance, she had two viral moments from the night that set social media ablaze. First, her moment with BTS member V as part of the supergroup's intro to their standing ovation performance. Additionally, the teen pop sensation drew inspiration from Adele and Taylor Swift by dropping and breaking one of her Grammys on the red carpet.

The trio of Filipino talents also performed at the award ceremony. Bruno Mars opened the show with Anderson .Paak as Silk Sonic, lighting up the stage and setting the energy for the night.

Olivia took to the stage and brought in all the emotions to perform her hit "Drivers License."

Lastly, H.E.R. gave us an electrifying and epic performance taking the stage alongside the legendary Lenny Kravitz and Travis Barker.

The duo shared details of their outfits for the evening, which included custom outfits made by all Filipino designers:

Visual Artist, Keavan Yazdani also represented at the ceremony and was nominated for two awards for his work on Justin Bieber's mega-hit "Peaches."
