"I'd just like to thank God for the blessings that have brought me here," she says, rocking curly locks and a classy, rhinestone-encrusted little black dress.
That year, she took home her first two golden gramophones, also winning Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her debut hit single, "Vision of Love." The powerful song was also nominated for Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year, while her self-titled debut album, which opens with the track, got a nod for Album Of The Year.
