GRAMMY WATCH! BY SARAH BISCONTE: Grammy Protestors Drop Off 23,000 Signatures at NARAS Headquarters

February 09, 2012

By Justino Aguila, Los Angeles

More than a dozen musicians, community leaders and supporters dropped off a thick stack of documents on Thursday (Feb. 9) with a reported 23,000 signatures at the Recording Academy headquarters as part of an ongoing effort to compel the organization into reinstating 31 categories that were eliminated last year.

The protesting group, comprised mostly of Latin jazz musicians, are also planning to protest the Grammy Awards show on Sunday outside the Staples Center and will later have their own showcase at Mama Juana's nightclub in Studio City at 4 p.m. in an effort to spread the word that their fight is not over.
