Andra Day On Her 'Rise Up' To Grammy Nominee
The last few weeks have been a whirlwind for Andra Day. On the heels of wrapping her first headlining tour, she performed at A&E’s Shining a Light concert with Nick Jonas. Next, the singer/songwriter was among the music acts featured in the 89th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. Then an early Christmas gift arrived: not one, but two Grammy Award nominations.
"I've been laughing the entire time. I don’t know what else to do," Day told Billboard of learning about her first Grammy nods.
"To get these Grammy nominations without substantial radio airplay makes them even more special," said Day who will kick off a radio promotion tour in January. "It’s OK if music just sounds good. You don't have to put some super-defined label on something to play it. Adele and Bruno Mars have been able to push past that. And I'm hoping to have that same effect with Cheers to the Fall."
