Library of Congress wins special Grammy Award
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Library of Congress is being honored with a special Grammy Award in Washington for its work over the past decade to preserve historic audio recordings.
The Recording Academy will present its Grammys on the Hill Award to the library on Wednesday night. The group is also honoring Jennifer Hudson with a Recording Artist Coalition Award for her charity work.
The Grammys on the Hill Awards are meant to connect the music industry with the world of policy and politics in Washington.
Daryl Friedman, the Recording Academy's chief lobbyist in Washington, says the library's National Recording Registry that preserves historic sound recordings each year has raised the profile of great American recordings.
The music group pushed for legislation in Congress 10 years ago to create the preservation program.
