Whitney Houston Won Six Grammys
February 13, 2012 by staff
Whitney Houston Won Six Grammys, Adele emerged as the top winner at Sunday’s Grammy Awards, winning six trophies including the prestigious trifecta of record, song and album of the year.
The British songstress, who also made a triumphant comeback from vocal cord surgery on the Grammy stage, sobbed as she won the night’s final award, album of the year, for “21.” It was last year’s top-selling album with more than six million copies sold and remains lodged at the No. 1 spot on this year’s charts.
Her victories tied her with Beyonce as the most wins by a woman in one evening.
“Mom, gold is good!” Adele shouted as she took the album of he year trophy.
The celebration of Adele came on a night where the Grammys marked the loss of one of music’s great female voices – and one of its most prized talents overall. Whitney Houston died the night before the Grammys, casting a shadow over music’s biggest night.
But while her death lent a somber overtone to the evening’s show, it did not overwhelm it, perhaps best proved by the show’s closing number, a jam session featuring Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Dave Grohl among others.
The night’s other big winners were Grohl’s Foo Fighters, who won five Grammys. Kanye West, who was the night’s top nominee with seven, won four awards.
Among the evening’s performances was a dance-heavy number by Chris Brown, a performance by Paul McCartney and by Bruce Springsteen, who kicked off the show by performing his new song “We Take Care of Our Own,” a rousing song that references the troubles of the nation.
