Gregory The Great Wins Grammy For Best Chant
Saint Gregory the Great was awarded the Grammy for Best Chant last night at the 59th annual Grammy Awards.
Accepting his award for ‘Salve’ the Roman artist paid tribute to Jesus Christ, whom he said he loved “like a father.”
“I can’t possibly accept this award,” a clearly emotional Gregory said in his acceptance speech. “I’m very humble and I’m grateful and gracious, but the music of my life is Corsican, and the ‘Miserere’ album was just so monumental…people of Corsica, it was so monumental.”
Gregory later went on to apologize for swearing during an earlier performance dedicated to Jesus, saying that “Christ meant so much to me that I could not give a poor performance.”
Gregory becomes the first pope to win a Grammy twice.
