TRIBUTES SET FOR MUSIC ICONS GEORGE MICHAEL AND PRINCE ON THE 59TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS

“George Michael and Prince were pop icons who showcased rare musical genius and otherworldly charisma,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “While each possessed a distinct style and sound, they were both adored by audiences worldwide. The passings of two such creative innovators were a huge loss for the creative community; The Recording Academy is humbled to pay homage to their tremendous legacies on the GRAMMY stage.”

“While the primary focus of the GRAMMY Awards is to celebrate and honor the year’s best in music, we consider it our responsibility to tell music’s broader story by honoring its legends lost—that’s what we strive to achieve with our annual tributes,” said Ken Ehrlich, Executive Producer of the GRAMMY Awards. “While it’s nearly impossible to convey the full depth of an artist’s cultural impact in a single performance, it’s that very challenge that has led us to some of our most memorable GRAMMY moments.”

The 2017 Grammy Awards ceremony will be held on February 12th, 2017. The CBS network will broadcast the show live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Compositions and artists of the eligibility year, which runs from October 1st, 2015 to September 30th, 2016.


Full List of the Grammy Awards Nominations 2017
The nominations will be announced on December 6th, 2016. The “pre-telecast” ceremony (officially named The Premiere Ceremony) will be held on the same day prior to the main ceremony.

Grammy organization In June of 2016, announced a few minor changes to the voting and awarding process:

Streaming-only recordings now eligible
As of 2017, recordings released solely through streaming services will be eligible to enter the award process. These recordings will have to be available through streaming platforms.

Applicable streaming services are paid subscription, full catalogue, on-demand streaming/limited download platforms that have existed as such within the United States for at least one full year as of the submission deadline.

All recordings entered must have an assigned International Standard Recording Code (ISRC).

Best New Artist guidelines amended
Existing Best New Artist rules were amended to remove the album barrier given current trends in how new music and developing artists are released and promoted.
Many new artists currently first release singles, tracks or EPs rather than full albums.

To become eligible in the category of Best New Artist, the artist, duo, or group: Must have released a minimum of five singles/tracks or one album, but no more than 30 singles/tracks or three albums.

May not have entered into this category more than three times, including as a performing member of an established group. Must have achieved a breakthrough into the public consciousness and impacted the musical landscape during the eligibility period.

The Best Blues Album category will branch into two distinct categories:
Best Traditional Blues Album (Blues recordings with traditional blues song and harmonic structures. Includes various subgenres such as Delta blues, Piedmont blues, jump/swing blues, Chicago blues and classic/Southern soul).

Best Contemporary Blues Album (Recordings which may employ non-traditional blues rhythms such as funk, hip-hop, reggae, and rock, or which feature contemporary techniques such as synthesizers or loops).

This means a return to the situation prior to 2012, the year both categories were merged in a major overhaul of Grammy categories.

Best Rap/Sung Collaboration category renamed
The Best Rap/Sung Collaboration category (in the Rap field) will be renamed as Best Rap/Sung Performance, to allow solo performances into this category.

This is a result of “the current state and future trajectory of rap by expanding the category beyond collaborations between rappers and vocalists to include recordings by a solo artist who blurs the lines between rapping and singing”.

Additional amendments were made to the number and type of music creators recognized in the categories of Best Choral Performance and Best Jazz Vocal Album.

CENTRIC announced Erykah Badu,will return to host the SOUL TRAIN AWARDS 2016. The four-time Grammy-award winning soul singer and songwriter will once again take over the Vegas stage with her eccentric style, cerebral music, incomparable spirit and comedic commentary.

Filmed November 6 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, SOUL TRAIN AWARDS 2016 will air on CENTRIC and BET on November 27th, 2016 at 8PM ET.



CENTRIC also announced the all-star nominees they will honor at the SOUL TRAIN AWARDS 2016 across 12 different categories.

Drake leads the pack with 12 total nominations including two nominations for the highly coveted Video of the Year Award for his feature on Rihanna’s single “Work” and this year’s mega hit “Hotline Bling.” Beyoncé follows with 8 nominations including Best R&B/Soul Female Artist, Album/Mixtape of the Year for her groundbreaking album “Lemonade,” and multiple honors for lead single “Formation” including Song of the Year, Best Dance Performance and The Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award.

Rihanna, Kanye West, DJ Khaled and Usher also received multiple nominations this year including Video of the Year, Album/Mixtape of the Year and Best Collaboration. The next generation of soul is also being recognized, including Bryson Tiller, Chance the Rapper and Anderson .Paak who are multi-nominees across categories including Best New Artist, Best R&B/Soul Male Artist and the Rhythm & Bars Award (Formerly Best Hip-Hop Song of the Year.)

Multi-platinum and three-time Grammy award-winning producer, singer-songwriter, artist, musician and technology expert Edward Theodore “Teddy” Riley, also known as the creator and king of New Jack Swing, is set to receive the coveted Legend Award.

Riley produced number one hits for countless icons which have governed the airways for decades. As a founding member of the multi-platinum Grammy winning group Blackstreet and a member of the group Guy, which became a multi-platinum group, Riley’s New Jack Swing sound was the epic lifeline that forever changed the design for R&B and Hip-Hop music.

He is the first African-American producer to bring Korean Pop (K-Pop) music to the USA and has been producing number one hits on Billboard charts for nearly a decade.

Aside from her musical achievements, Rihanna is bona fide business woman with multiple entrepreneurial ventures. However, most importantly, her undeniable cultural influence has forever imprinted her in history as a Global Icon despite her young age.

With over 81 million Facebook fans, 64 million Twitter and 42 million Instagram followers, Rihanna is putting her influence to good use via additional philanthropic efforts. Chief among these is her own Clara Lionel Foundation. Established in 2012 and named after Rihanna’s beloved grandparents Clara and Lionel Braithwaite, the foundation works to improve the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, Education, arts and Culture.

================================================================================

Rhythm and blues, often abbreviated as R&B or RnB, is a genre of popular Urban-American music that originated in the 1940s.

The term was originally used by record companies to describe recordings marketed predominantly to urban market , at a time when “urbane, rocking, jazz based music with a heavy, insistent beat” was becoming more popular.

In the commercial rhythm and blues music typical of the 1950s through the 1970s, the bands usually consisted of piano, one or two guitars, bass, drums, saxophone, and background vocalists.

The term rhythm and blues has undergone a number of shifts in meaning. In the early 1950s it was frequently applied to blues records.

Starting in the mid-1950s, after this style of music contributed to the development of rock and roll, the term “R&B” became used to refer to music styles that developed from and incorporated electric blues, as well as gospel and soul music.

In the 1960s, several British rock bands such as the Rolling Stones, The Who and The Animals were referred to and promoted as being RnB bands; posters for The Who’s residency at the Marquee Club in 1964 contained the slogan.

This tangent of RnB is now known as “British rhythm and blues”. By the 1970s, the term rhythm and blues changed again and was used as a blanket term for soul and funk.

In the 1980s, a newer style of R&B developed, becoming known as “Contemporary R&B”. It combines elements of rhythm and blues, soul, funk, pop, hip hop and dance. ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhythm_and_blues
