Mary & Josh’s debut album wins Grammys
Mary & Josh are a young up-and-coming couple in the music industry who have already achieved great success. Their debut album, “The Middle,” won Grammys for “Best New Artist” and “Best Contemporary Soul Gospel Album.” Mary & Josh’s first album will be one of the most talked-about albums of the year, and they’ll probably have a busy year ahead.
The pair are one of the most promising new groups to emerge from the Los Angeles music scene. The duo’s debut album “The Middle” has garnered critical acclaim, but the Grammys are not the only honors these talented artists have won. They also participated in the GRAMMY Block Party, which was hosted by The Recording Academy’s Los Angeles Chapter. The event was held in Los Angeles, California, and the proceeds were donated to the PATH, a nonprofit dedicated to ending homelessness.
Beck’s “Morning Phase” wins Album of the Year
Mary & Josh are the newest winners of the Grammys Newcomers of the Year category with their debut album Morning Phase. The duo, who hail from Nashville, were nominated for this award along with Sam Smith, Beck, Pharrell and Beyonce. Morning Phase was released in February 2014 and received mostly favorable reviews but was overlooked by the mainstream. The album ranked 60th on the overall chart, just behind Mary J. Blige’s Christmas album. It was considered the follow-up to Beck’s 2002 album Sea Change, and was viewed as a return to form by fans. The Grammys recognition has rekindled interest in Beck, as Spotify reports a dramatic increase in music streams of Beck’s music.
Mary & Josh’s debut EP, ‘Good For You’, was produced by Jonathan Rado. The album features mellow, melodic rock, which will be appreciated by listeners. The duo will be performing their debut album at Larmer Tree in late summer.
Beyonce’s “Sweet Dreams” wins Best R&B Song
Beyonce’s “Sweetest Dreams” is a catchy, electro-pop dance track that showcases the singer’s vocal abilities and features heavy bass and synthesizers. The song was released in 2009 as the first single off of the singer’s “I Am…Sasha Fierce” album. The song describes the beginnings of a new relationship and hints at the toxicity that can result.
The song is a feminist song about female empowerment, and is the lead single off of Beyonce’s fourth studio album, 4. It peaked at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and received strong critical acclaim.
Stevie Wonder’s performance via satellite
If you’re a fan of Stevie Wonder and can’t make it to New York to see him live, you can stream his performance on the internet or via satellite. He’ll be performing at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park on September 23rd. The event will be aired live on US TV network MSNBC and also be available on YouTube.
Advancing the Dream: Live from The Apollo was a two-hour television event hosted by Reverend Al Sharpton. It featured interviews and discussion sessions with diverse individuals. The broadcast also included videos of many of the performers. BBC Radio 4 also recorded a recording of King’s speech, with the voice of Stevie contributing.
Lady Gaga’s performance at 2011 Grammys
Lady Gaga’s performance at the 2011 Grammy Awards was a spectacle. The ‘Born This Way’ singer arrived at the Staples Center in an egg, carrying scantily clad servants behind her. She showed off her bare body and swayed her hair in the air as she danced.
Some of Lady Gaga’s fans were less than pleased with her performance. Critics compared the song to Madonna’s “Express Yourself” from the ’80s, a song that Gaga has yet to address. There are plenty of moments on the Grammys that you can’t miss, including the incredible fashion and over-the-top performances.
Lady Gaga’s Grammy performance opened with her song, “Marry the Night.” She was joined by dancers dressed like skeletons and performed “You and I.” After performing at the Grammys, she also performed at the GRAMMY Museum as part of the show’s “Educational Initiatives” segment.
