Music’s Biggest Night Honored Legendary Artists and Plenty of Newcomers

The Los Angeles Recording School, a division of the L.A. Film School, recognizes our alumni who’ve made outstanding contributions to the music industry through their work on Grammy-winning albums. Congratulations!

The 62nd Grammys aired with a somber tone after the tragic news broke earlier on Sunday about the passing of basketball legend Kobe Bryant and eight others who were with him. The Recording Academy paid tribute to Kobe Bryant, Nipsey Hussle, and a list of other musicians who passed away in 2019-2020 and will forever be remembered for leaving their mark on music and culture.

Some big moments from the night included newcomer Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas winning five Grammys each. According to Billboard, Eilish made Grammy history as the first woman, and second artist ever, to win the top four categories in the same year: album of the year (for When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?), record of the year, song of the year (both for Bad Guy) and best new artist.

Here are the three alumni to join our growing list of award-winning grads who are doing what they love in the music industry!
