LAS VEGAS — The Grammy Awards, the highest honors in the music industry, were out at a live ceremony in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Multi-genre artist Jon Batiste won album of the year and R&B duo Silk Sonic took two of the top honors at the ceremony that featured a surprise appeal for support from wartime President Volodymyr Zelenskiy of Ukraine.

Batiste landed the night’s biggest prize for “We Are,” an album inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I believe this to my core – there is no best musician, best artist, best dancer, best actor,” Batiste said. “The creative arts are subjective… I just put my head down and I work on the craft every day.”
