US singer Beyoncé has already received four Grammys at this year’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday. The artist has 32 Grammys – more than any other award winner so far. Beyoncé replaced the conductor Georg Solti, who died in 1997 and was the record holder with 31 Grammys.
The 41-year-old, who was nominated in nine categories, received, among other things, the coveted Grammy for the best album for her work “Renaissance”. “I try not to be too emotional (…) and just enjoy this evening,” Beyoncé said at the awards ceremony.
“I want to thank my parents, my father and mother, who loved and encouraged me,” she added. “Thank you to my wonderful husband and three wonderful children for being at home watching.”
Six years break
With tens of millions of records sold and seven studio albums, all of which reached number one in the US charts, Beyoncé is one of the most successful musicians in the world – and one of the richest. She has already set several records in the charts. After a six-year break, she released her seventh studio album “Renaissance” in the summer.
On the danceable record she once again got to the heart of the zeitgeist. At the ceremony on Sunday in Los Angeles, the hit single “Break My Soul” could make the difference: the song was nominated in the two main categories “Best Song” and “Best Recording” of the year as well as in several other categories. In addition, “Renaissance” was the best album at the start.
The 65th Grammy Music Awards were presented on Monday night in Los Angeles. The gala was again moderated by comedian Trevor Noah. According to the organizer, Grammys should be awarded in 91 categories this year. (AFP, dpa)
