The 57th Grammy Awards took place on Sunday, February 8, 2015. Among the usual nominees – Beyonce, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran to name a few – were a few less usual contenders.
A recording of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning autobiography I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up For Education and Changed the World by Malala Yousafzai, took home the Grammy for Best Children’s Album. The story of enormous courage and conviction is recorded by Neela Vaswani.
And, a recording by the late Joan Rivers of her autobiography Diary of a Mad Diva, won Best Spoken Word Album. Funny, witty and as always larger than life, this collection of essays in her own voice is pure Joan.
