Los Angeles: American singer Samara Joy bagged the Grammy award for 'The Best Jazz Vocal Album' for 'Linger Awhile' that released on Verve Records in September 2022.

Joy first began singing jazz while attending Fordham High School for the Arts in the Bronx, New York, and she carried that voice to State University of New York at Purchase. During her time in college, she not only won the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, but was also awarded the Ella Fitzgerald Scholarship in 2020.

The singer was also nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammys this year.

The 65th annual Grammy Awards is being held at the Arena, Los Angeles. It recognises the best recordings, compositions, and artists of the eligibility year, running from October 1, 2021, to September 30, 2022.

Meanwhile, Beyonce who has nine nominations this year, has already won Best Traditional R&B Performance (”Plastic Off The Sofa”), Best Dance/Electronic Recording (“Break My Soul”) and Best R&B song (“Cuff It”) at this year's Grammys. She is expected to break Hungarian-British music conductor Georg Solti's record for most overall wins at the Grammys, this year.
