Angelique Kidjo Dedicates Grammy to Women of Africa
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.
