Grammy Award Winners 1999

One month after his death, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra conductor laureate Robert Shaw won Grammy Awards for best classical album and best choral performance. Both awards were for Shaw’s last album, “Barber: Prayers of Kierkegaard/Vaughan Williams: Dona Nobis Pacem/Bartok: Cantata Profana,” which was recorded with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. Another Atlanta resident also won a 1999 Grammy - R&B vocalist Monica Arnold. She and fellow-singer Brandy won the award for best R&B performance by a duo for their recording of “The Boy is Mine.” The winning song came from their 1998 album by the same name that produced three No. 1 singles.
