Ludmilla won her first Latin Grammy with the album Numanice #2; she had previously been nominated in 2017
Ludmilla won the first Latin Grammy of her career, on the night of this Thursday (17). The singer received the award for Best Pagode/Samba Album with her project Numanice #2, created during the pandemic of the new coronavirus and which became one of the greatest successes of the funkeira’s career.
In this year, Ludmilla was the only woman competing in the category: the other artists were Nego Álvaro, Martinho da Vila, Alfredo Del-Penho, João Cavalcanti, Moyseis Marques and Pedro Miranda, and Péricles. The singer took the stage to receive her golden gramophone and was moved at the time of the speech.
“I’m very happy, I never imagined winning a Grammy, one of the biggest music awards in the world, and receiving this Grammy through a dream that came from my head. That many people did not believe at first. I want to dedicate this award to God, my family and all my fans. It’s ours, Brazil!”, celebrated.
Ludmilla created the Numanice project as a pagode EP in 2020, at the height of the new coronavirus pandemic, to meet the request of several fans for her to record some songs in this style. The success of the idea made her record a live album of the genre in early 2021 and, soon, Numanice #2, whose shows have been collecting attendance records in Brazil.
