Los Angeles, USA, Feb 10 (efe-epa).- The pre-gala of the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, the most important event in the music industry, where 75 of the 84 awards were announced, celebrated artists such as Lady Gaga, Brandi Carlile, Argentina's Claudia Brant, and Childish Gambino as winners on Sunday.

Gaga won two trophies in the categories of best song written for a visual medium ("Shallow", shared with Bradley Cooper) and best solo pop performance, for "Joanne."

For her part, Claudia Brant won the award for best Latin pop album, thanks to "Sincera."

She said on stage at the Nokia Theater, where the event took place that the album was never about how often it plays, the number of fans or the ranking in the charts but "this album was about making great music. It's a miracle we're here."

In addition, the best Latin album of rock, urban or alternative music went to "Aztlan" by Zoe, while the best regional Mexican music album was "¡Mexico por siempre!" by Luis Miguel.

Also, "Anniversary by the Spanish Harlem Orchestra, won the best tropical Latin album.

In other categories of interest, "Sweetener", by Ariana Grande, left its mark as the best pop vocal album, and "This is America", by Childish Gambino achieved the best music video and later won the song of the year Grammy.

Angelino Beck also won two awards (best alternative music album and best musical engineering in a non-classical music album, both for "Colors"), while Brandi Carlile, the most nominated woman (six) of the day, is showcased with three consecutive awards in the best Americana Album category, two for her Americana music single "The Joke" and another for her album "By the Way, I Forgive You."

On the other hand, the Latin singer, Lucy Kalantari and her band, the Jazz Cats, won in the category of best album for children, with "All the Sounds", while Sting and Shaggy won the trophy for the best reggae album, for their "44/876".

A highlight came with the album "American Dreamers: Voices Of Hope, Music Of Freedom" by John Daversa and his Big Band, made up of "dreamers" as immigrants are known who benefited from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which triumphed as the best jazz album for a large group.

This work was conceived as an opportunity to showcase the talents of 53 young foreigners, from 17 different countries, who became musical prodigies.

Doug Davis, the producer of the album, said that these young people are "talented and courageous role models" and indicated that winning a Grammy is something incredible for a citizen, but seismic for an undocumented person in America.

Another emotional moment came with the award for the best rock performance, destined for the late Chris Cornell, winner for "When Bad Does Good", a trophy that was received by his children.

And finally, the former US President Jimmy Carter was named the winner in the field of the best-spoken album, for "Faith - A Journey For All".
