A number of Australian APRA AMCOS members have found success at the Grammy Awards overnight
Paul Mabury won Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for You Say by Lauren Daigle
Alan Hicks won Best Music Film for Netflix’s Quincy
A big, hearty congratulations goes out to our members who had their names called out to take to the stage and accept their 2019 Grammy Award. What an honour.
Nashville-based songwriter and musician Paul Mabury won Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for his songwriting contribution to Lauren Daigle's You Say, a major hit song that recently became the longest by a solo female artist to top the Hot Christian Songs Chart on Billboard.
It's officially a cross-over hit and sits at #39 on the Billboard Hot 100. This song also features on Daigle's Look Up Child, which won Best Contemporary Christian Music Album this year.
Filmmaker and musician Alan Hicks won a Grammy for Best Music Film for Netflix's Quincy, and accepted the Award with his co-director Rashida Jones and producer Paula DuPré Pesmen. And special mention to member Jasper Leak who served as the film's Music Supervisor/Music Consultant.
It wouldn't be the Grammy's without Melbourne's twice-nominated musical innovators Hiatus Kaiyote coming into play. The group has a writing credit on The Carters’ Everything Is Love, winner of Best Urban Contemporary Album, with their song The World It Softly Lulls used in the album track 713. Last year Kendrick Lamar's Damn., took home Best Rap Album, which featured Hiatus Kaiyote's Atari.
