Angelique Kidjo rocks her African print to the Grammys, wins an award

Angelique Kidjo portrays African by wearing Africa print to the 2016 Grammy awards which held in Los Angeles yesterday night. Won her third Grammy and dedicated it to aspiring artists in the continent. She won the Grammy for Best World Music Album for “Sings,” a collection of her songs infused with Western classical traditions in collaboration with the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg.

This is the second straight year that Kidjo has won the Best World Music Album prize, after last year’s “Eve” that paid tribute to African women.

Legendary Beninese-born singer ran to the stage all smiling to accept the award and danced to James Brown’s “I Feel Good,” performed by a pit orchestra. “I want to dedicate this Grammy to all the traditional musicians in Africa, in my country, to all the young generation. Africa is on the rise, Africa is positive, Africa is joyful. Let’s get together and be one with music, and say no to hate and violence,” she said
