Grammy 2020: All Award Winners For Gospel Music

1

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards took place this year under the shadow of major tumult at the Recording Academy. They also began just hours after news broke that NBA legend Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others died in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles. Outside the Staples Center, arrivals took place on the red carpet as mourners gathered outside the arena to pay their respects at the home of the Lakers, Bryant’s team for his entire career.

Despite the somber mood, the stars showed up for a night of performances, Grammy Moments and of course the distribution of the awards themselves.
