Anthony Hamilton Brings Grammy Home

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 2/09/2009 No comments
Charlotte native Anthony Hamilton won a Grammy last night for Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for his collaboration with Al Green on "You've Got The Love I Need." It's Hamilton's first Grammy win, though he's been nominated seven times. He's pictured below on the red carpet with his wife Tarsha McMillian Hamilton.

Our other fellow Charlottean, Fantasia Barrino, didn't fare as well. She was nominated for her collaboration with Jennifer Hudson for the song "I'm His Only Woman," but, coincidentally, lost out to the pairing of Al Green and John Legend. Al Green proved last night that he's back, and he isn't afraid to go toe to toe with the younger generation, which is evident by his songs with Hamilton and Legend.
You can see Hamilton performing tonight on the 2009 BET Honors at 9 p.m. on BET.
