The recording industry's most prestigious award, the GRAMMY, is presented annually by The Recording Academy. A GRAMMY is awarded by The Recording Academy's voting membership to honor excellence in the recording arts and sciences. It is truly a peer honor.
First-round ballots are sent to voting members in good dues standing. To help ensure the quality of the voting, members are directed to vote only in their fields of expertise; they may nominate in the four general categories (Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best New Artist) and in no more than nine(9) out of the 29 fields. Ballots are tabulated by the independent accounting firm of Deloitte.
Barbra Streisand was given the MusiCares Person of the Year Award. She looks fabulous! Enjoy the event!
