Whitney Houston was charged to perform at the 1989 Grammy Awards Night, and of course, she was all prepared for that night. The 31st Annual Grammy Awards, hosted by Billy Crystal which fell off at the Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles on the 22nd of February, had all winners, nominees and industry players seated and charged up for the honors.
The night was to recognize achievements of artists who did extraordinarily well during the year under review. There were various performers that night but Whitney Houston appears to have pulled off a brilliant show. Her entrance to the stage alone was enough for the tons of audience in the auditorium to decide that, she is obviously a diamond behind the mouthpiece.
Her quality voice, the selected tune, and even her glowing attire was fantastic. Her entry to stage was accompanied with a loud applause from the audience, and her ending of the ‘One Moment In Time’ song at the Awards was simply excellent. She was therefore given a standing ovation by the entire audience.
Meanwhile, Bobby McFerrin won the Male Pop Vocal Performance with his ‘Don’t Worry Be Happy’ tune, while Tracy Chapman also came out decisively as the Female Pop Vocal Performance with ‘Fast Car’.
There were several other winners, however in all, the 1989 awards yielded a total of ten GRAMMY nominations (including three nods for the album’s first single, “Shake It Off” for the 57th GRAMMY Awards) and three wins for the 58th GRAMMY Awards including Album Of The Year, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Music Video for “Bad Blood.”
The Grammy’s is the most famous Awards ceremony on the planet with symphonic and operatic conductor, Sir Georg Solti, being the most Grammy Award-winning individual ever with an aggregate of 31 Grammy Awards won for recordings of works as differing as Bach, Bartók, and Wagner.
