Canadian YouTuber and TV personality, Lilly Singh, in partnership with Johnnie Walker, recently hosted an impressive Diwali party named “Love and Light”.
Among the attendees were big names such as Mindy Kaling, Tan France, Victoria Justice, and Liza Koshy. The event planning, theme selection, guest list creation, and vendor management is a year-round process, demonstrating Singh's commitment to the event.
Singh typically works alongside SoCal Event Planners, a collaboration which has proven invaluable in helping her translate her vision into reality. Interestingly, when creating her videos, she often uses her father's Johnnie Walker collection as a backdrop. This whisky brand has been a key sponsor for all three of her parties.
Highlights of the Event
A standout moment for Singh was a dance with Terry Crews to Vanessa Carlton's “A Thousand Miles”. This was a heartwarming scene that brought to mind the movie White Chicks. Singh also made a point to mention how much she enjoyed the ‘Mojo Dojo Mango House', one of the cocktails served at the party.
For Singh, the process of event planning goes beyond the surface level. It constitutes an act of self-care and offers a platform through which she can celebrate her South Asian heritage on a grand scale.
She has already set her sights on the next Diwali party, hinting that it will surpass its predecessors in terms of scale and grandeur.
