Grammy Awards 2019: Cardi B, Brandie Carlie, Drake, Childish Gambino Won

61st Grammy Awards

Members of the music industry came together to celebrate the best music that was created in the year 2017 at 61st Annual Grammy Awards 2019, held on February 10 at the Staples Center in Los Angles, USA.

The starry night was hosted by supremely talented Alicia Keys, who is known for singles Girl on Fire, No One. She talked about love and peace by sharing her personal anecdotes and inspiring incidents which created an optimistic atmosphere. After that, there was a special appearance by Michelle Obama who said that “Music has always helped me tell my story and allows us to hear one another and invite each other in.”

But the vibe of empowerment of music didn’t stop with Obama and Alicia. Drake showed up at the stage to accept the award for best rap song “God’s Plan” and gave a message to the aspiring artists and singers that awards like Grammy are not a measure of success in music industry. He said further “The point is, you’ve already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word if you’re a hero in your hometown,” he continued.

“Look, look, if there are people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain, in the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don’t need this [award] right here. I promise you, you already won,” he said, holding up his Grammy. At that point, the ceremony’s producers cut his microphone off and went to commercial.

Cardi B was the first solo woman to win Best Rap Album and Brandi Carlile winning three in the Americana categories. Also, Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” won four awards, including Song of the Year and Best Music Video. It was the first rap song in history to win Song of the Year at the Grammys.

The event also witnessed some power-packed performances from Lady Gaga for Shallow, Camilla Cabello for Havana. Dolly Parton was this year’s MusiCares Person Of The Year, and whole a bevvy of artists honoured her with their respective performances and speeches. Perry and Musgraves sang “Here You Come Again,” Cyrus did “Jolene” on her own and then a cover of Neil Young’s “After The Gold Rush” with Morris, Little Big Town did “Red Shoes,” and they all did “9 To 5.”
