Last night’s In Memoriam segment at the Grammy Awards featured Diahann Carroll at the top of its list of people in music that died over the last year. The Recording Academy showed recognition of the Hollywood legend’s singing career.
At the Academy Awards in a few weeks, Ms. Carroll should also be in their In Memoriam segment as well, in honor of her acting accomplishments, including an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for the 1974 film Claudine.
Last year, we paid tribute to Ms. Carroll by re-introducing our 2008 CYInterview with her. You can see that by clicking here.
Eddie Money and rapper Nipsey Hussle were among numerous others in music who were remembered during the In Memoriam segment last night at the Grammy Awards.
