Mon Laferte Wins Best Alternative Album For 'Norma' At The 2019 Latin GRAMMYs
Mon Laferte has won Best Alternative Album at the 20th Latin GRAMMYs for Norma.
"What emotion... [Thanks] to my collegues ... and especially to the public, the people, the fans that are there, without people nothing could happen." she said during her acceptance speech about the album recorded in one take. "This is for Chile." The singer/songwriter also read a note from a fellow Chilean singer/songwriter addressing the current socio-political events happening in the country.
Earlier this year, the Chilean singer told the Recording Academy that Norma was meant to represent where she comes from.
"So, Norma is an album created conceptually as the storytelling of 10 chapters of a relationship—in songs. [I wanted to bring in] my roots, not only where I come from, but more Pan-regional sounds—so you have mambo, you have salsa, you have many other genre," she said.
