Angélique Kidjo has just won the 2016 Grammy Award for “Best World Music Album” for her Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg collaboration, Sings. The Beninese icon was up against South African choral group legends Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Malawi’s Zomba Prison Project, Gilberto Gil and Anoushka Shankar.
The win today is the third career Grammy for the Beninese icon. Kidjo took home the same award last year for her album Eve, and prior to that in 2008 for Djin Djin.
In an Instagram post, the singer, activist and UN Goodwill Ambassador dedicated the award to her fellow African artists and musicians.
