India.Arie Reflects On Grammy Goose Egg

Dan Aquilante of the New York Post caught up with after the singer received four Grammy nominations for ‘Voyage to India’, hoping things end up going better than they did last year when she went home empty handed after getting seven nods. Given a year to think about what happened, Arie says, “I realize that the things I hold close, that make my music, like my morals and spiritual ethics, aren’t what you are nominated for. Last year, I was being nominated because my sound was different and fresh. I was a new, young black face – that’s cool – but I wasn’t being nominated on the merit of my character. I had to figure that out.”
