Grammy Dedicated to the 11 Million Undocumented Immigrants




It was a memorable night for the Mexican-American singer known as La Marisoul and her Los Angeles-based band members.  They earned the first Grammy of their careers. La Santa Cecilia, named after the patron saint of musicians, Saint Cecilia, won the award for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album for the bilingual band’s album Treinta Dias.

“Thank you to our beautiful City of Angels,” said Marisoul. “We are proud to be from immigrant parents and dedicate the Grammy to the 11 million undocumented workers in America.”
