In her acceptance speech at the awards, she said, “Who would have thought that having my mother sing an old children’s lullaby from India would get a response from parents in America?” She also took to her Instagram and posted a picture of herself with her award celebrating her win.
The singer donned a traditional red and golden ensemble at the Grammy Awards 2022. She wrote in the caption, “I have no words to describe today’s magic.
