Grammy Awards 2018: #GrammysSoMale!

There was great diversity last night at the 2018 Grammys–but only within the male group.

Indeed, the only woman to be presented a solo Grammy during the telecast on Sunday night at Madison Square Garden was Alessia Cara, who earned Best New Artist.

Recording Academy president Neil Portnow was asked about #GrammysSoMale:

“It has to begin with women who have the creativity in their hearts and souls, who want to be musicians, who want to be engineers, producers, and want to be part of the industry on the executive level.  They need to step up because I think they would be welcome. I don’t have personal experience of those kinds of brick walls that you face but I think it’s upon us — us as an industry — to make the welcome mat very obvious, breeding opportunities for all people who want to be creative and paying it forward and creating that next generation of artists.”
