Song: "Is This Love" (iTunes>)

Artist: Corinne Bailey Rae

Won for: Best R&B Performance

Previous wins: Rae won her first GRAMMY Award in 2007 for Album Of The Year for her participation on Herbie Hancock's The Joni Letters

Did you know?: "Is This Love" is a song originally written and performed by reggae legend Bob Marley. Rae's rendition is featured on 2011's The Love EP. Designed to tide her fans over until her next studio album, the EP features five covers, including "Is This Love," Paul McCartney & Wings' "My Love" and Prince's "I Wanna Be Your Lover." Rae has described the set as an "homage to some of my favorite musicians, as well as a conversation between some of my musical influences." Rae received three GRAMMY nominations in 2006: Best New Artist and Song and Record Of The Year for her hit "Put Your Records On."
