It’s An Honor Just Being Nominated…

I’m not really one for award shows. As a matter of fact when someone mentioned the Grammy’s to me, my first thought was movie awards. One thing I am quite sure of however is that there seems to be a fair share of mainstream and lesser known artists in the urban R&B categories.And while I’m sure that this in no way means that these artists will actually take home an award, I’m sure it was an honor just being nominated. If I had my way, the following would not be walking home empty handed.

Best Female R&B Vocal Performance
(For a solo vocal performance. Singles or Tracks only.)
If I Have My Way – Chrisette Michele
