Grammy Post #2 Where's the love for the Broadway Star

Also the more I think about it I have to say when are the Grammy's that pretty much will come up a category for "Best Belching on a Spoken Album" decide that Broadway performers and separately cabaret sings put out solo discs and honor them with at least their own category. The Best Traditional Pop Album category is basically anyone over 60 (Tonny Bennent, Rod Stewert, Streisand) lets make up a something where people like Audra McDonald, Kate Baldwin, Cheynne Jackson, KT Sullivan, Julie Wilson would be Grammy Winners. Heck Patti LuPone won two Grammy's this past year because an odd technical glitch in Best Opera recording for her performance in "The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny." The Award is given out to the Composers and featured performers the only problem is that it was never released on CD. It came on PBS and their was a DVD copy available but no recording. If there was a "Best Broadway Female Vocalist Award I'm sure LuPone would have won it for her "Patti Lupone at Les Mouches" since it was made sound from bootlegs and soundboards. She probably would have won for her recordings of ""Evita," "Anything Goes." "Patti LuPone Live,!" "Sunset Boulevard," and "Gypsy" at least.

Audra McDonald won two Grammys for that same "technical glitch." She was also a performer in Mahagonny.
