Each year at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, the Partner Celebration caps off our five-day conference by celebrating partner success.

And this year is no exception. We’re looking forward to celebrating with you in a BIG way.

Your Partner Celebration headliner: Gwen Stefani

I am thrilled to announce that Gwen Stefani , three-time Grammy winner, coach for hit show The Voice, and fashion mogul, will be joining us at this year’s celebration. This exclusive performance is only for WPC attendees and is in honor of you—our partners.

Gwen StefaniThree-time Grammy winner Gwen Stefani has achieved worldwide success as a performer, songwriter, and recording artist who has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide with No Doubt and as a multi-platinum solo artist. Stefani released two solo albums — Love.Angel.Music.Baby and The Sweet Escape — featuring the hit singles “Rich Girl,” “Sweet Escape,” “What Are You Waiting For?” and the Pharrell Williams-produced No. 1 “Hollaback Girl,” which became the first digital download to sell more than one million copies in the United States.

With her debut as a coach for the seventh season of The Voice, Stefani released “Baby Don’t Lie” and re-united with Williams to release the high-energy collaboration “Spark The Fire.” In the fall of 2015, Stefani returned as a coach for the ninth season of The Voice and released the synth-pop ballad “Used To Love You,” a song that has since been certified gold. Stefani kicked off 2016 with the release of her second single “Make Me Like You” and a music video that was created on live television. Directed by GRAMMY-Award winner Sophie Muller, the action unfolded on CBS during a four-minute commercial break during this year’s Grammy Awards and featured multiple sets and costume changes in real time. Both “Used To Love You” and “Make Me Like You” are featured on Stefani’s third studio album This Is What The Truth Feels Like which was released March 18th on Interscope Records and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart.

Stefani is widely recognized as a trendsetter and accomplished fashion designer and entrepreneur, having launched much loved brands L.A.M.B and Harajuku Lovers. Stefani’s most recent blockbuster design collaboration is the makeup collection she created in partnership with Urban Decay.
