THE RECORDING ACADEMY® STATEMENT ON CESARIA EVORA

GRAMMY®-winning singer Cesaria Evora’s stirring voice touched people of all cultures, regardless of language and race. Her uncommon musical style brought her from her homeland of West Africa to Portugal, where she went on to share her unique melodies with the world, yet always remained connected to her roots. The music world has lost one of its most distinct voices, and our deepest sympathies extend to her family, friends, and all who were impacted by her global cultural significance.
