If you’ve read our most recent blog post about a recap on the 2018 Grammy Awards, you know it was a New York event that focused on both music and cultural statements!
That post got us thinking even more about the Grammys this year and music awards in general as the country’s sociopolitical climate has developed. While the two biggest winners of the night, Bruno Mars and Kendrick Lamar, definitely made a splash in the music industry, which other artists made similar contributions without recognition? It is also especially difficult to have more than one incredible artist in narrow categories competing against one another. In the future, we hope to see those at the top of their game be rewarded and identified for their artistry no matter how popular they are. We have hope, and we’ll be patiently waiting. In the mean time, we’ll jam to songs from Bruno Mars to India Arie.
Which artists do you wish had won a Grammy? Let us know in the comments and on our social media!
