Rosalía Shouts-Out Lauryn Hill, Kate Bush And More Women During Latin GRAMMY Speech
The 19th Latin GRAMMY Awards were a big night for Spanish rising star Rosalía. The singer, who is recognized for bringing Spain's flamenco music to the world stage, won her first-ever GRAMMY awards and used her acceptance speech for the Best Fusion/ Urban Interpretation category to thank the women who blazed a trail for her own career.
"This is incredible. It's a dream. Thank you so much for all the love, thanks all of you for the recognition, I am proud to lead my project and make always the music that represents me, despite the risk, and to be able to share it with the world and be here," she said." I want to thank women like Lauryn Hill ...Bjork, Kate Bush ... shout out to all the women in the industry that have taught me that I could do this because thanks to them I am here."
She also thanked her family, team and Spanish artist El Guincho who worked on her album. Earlier in the night, she also won a Latin GRAMMY for Best Alternative Song.
