Angelique Kidjo, one of the biggest African musicians on the world stage, on Sunday won her second Grammy for World Music for “Eve,” a musical tribute to the continent’s women.

“This album is dedicated to the women of Africa — to their beauty and resilience,” the Beninese singer said. “Women of Africa — you rock!”

“For me, 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 said as she accepted the award at a ceremony in Los Angeles.
