There were many highlights during last night’s GRAMMY broadcast, but one moment we want to make sure doesn’t go unnoticed is a something we didn’t see on TV.
We want to extend our congratulations to WAVE artist Chris Botti, who won the GRAMMY Award for Best Pop Instrumental for his album Impressions during the pre-GRAMMY awards before the ceremony!
Chris beat out fellow smooth artists including Norman Brown & Gerald Albright’s 27/7, Dave Koz’s Live At The Blue Note Tokyo, Larry Carlton’s Four Hands & A Heart Volume One and Arun Shenoy’s Rumbadoodle.
Despite Chris taking home GRAMMY gold, there was no bad blood among his fellow contenders Norman Brown and Dave Koz, who took to their Twitter to congratulate Chris on the deserving win.
Congratulations to Chris Botti and all the winners tonight. I had a great time being there. It was an honor to be… fb.me/2oyo3FbPi
