As we saw on March 14th, this 63rd Grammy Awards Ceremony was about women standing out and making history in the music industry. Here we have a short recap of these outstanding awards and new records achieved.
One of the women who stood out was the great Beyoncé, who broke the record for the female artist with the most Grammys in history. She won the award for Best R&B Performance with “Black Parade” and together with Megan Thee Stallion for “Savage” the award for Best Rap Song, gathering a total of 28 Grammy. Also, Megan Thee Stallion also stood out as the Best New Artist on this year’s edition.
Another great artist was Billie Eilish, who stood out at last year’s ceremony with plenty of wins. This year, with 4 nominations, she won the most prestigious award of the night, Record of the Year, with the song “Everything I Wanted”.
We also had the great pop and country singer Taylor Swift standing out in history, obtaining the award for Album of the Year with “Folklore”. She is the first woman ever to win this award 3 times. She won it in 2010 with “Fearless” and in 2016 with “1989”. The other great artists ever to win this award for the third time are Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder.
As a 4th outstanding woman, we have a singer and composer Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson, H.E.R, who received together with Tiara Thomas the Grammy Song of the Year for the song “I Can’t Breathe”, which talks about viral George Floyd’s last words when he passed away in May 2020.
H.E.R said that she never would have imagined that her fear and pain would ever have such an impact, and she was thankful for it and added that that was why she writes music.
