Angelique Kidjo takes home Grammy for World Music

We already told you that we loved “Eve” and just last week we urged you via our Facebook Page to check it out if you haven’t already done so. Well we can now tell you that Angelique Kidjo’s second GRAMMY win was well deserved!

One of the biggest female African musicians of our time took home the Grammy for World Music album for “Eve,” which was a tribute to us – Africa’s women.

In her acceptance speech, she declared that “…music is a weapon of peace, and today more than ever, as artists we have a role to play in the stability of this world…”

Kidjo previously won a Grammy for her 2007 album “Djin Djin,” which also featured artists like the guitar legend Carlos Santana and singer Alicia Keys.

At 54 – and I only mention her age so that I can also say she doesn’t look it – Angelique Kidjo is known for her activism. She lists climate change, improved public health in West Africa especially in the wake of the Ebola crisis and the girl child, as her areas of concern.

GoWoman Kidjo we congratulate you, we salute you, we love you, we thank you!
