Etana, who became the first female in 21 years to be nominated for a Grammy Award in 2018, said her music would not have be soon impactful had it not been for her fans.
“I want to thank my fans for streaming the music and coming to all the shows. All the people in the music who voted for my album to be nominated, you are awesome for doing so. One of my most fantastic memories was walking that red carpet,” she said.
