Global Citizens Cleaned Up at the 2018 Grammys

The 2018 Grammys are officially in the books.

They walked the red carpet, crushed their performances, and at the end of the day, artists supporting the Global Citizen movement cleaned up the awards show.

From new artists like Alessia Cara to long-time legends like Jay-Z, fans were treated to an amazing year of music from Global Citizen musicians. Kendrick Lamar stole the show by winning five (!) awards and delivering a powerful rendition of the songs that helped him do it.
