Aramide Sarumoh popularly known as Aramide, is set to be inducted into Grammy’s Governing board. This induction which would take place on Monday, would make the singer a part of the Governors for the Washington DC Chapter board.
She announced the news on her twitter page saying;
“When I started music, all I knew was I wanted to sing. I just wanted my voice 2 be heard. But now, music is so much more 4 me, it’s more than just making my voice heard. It’s more about inspiring, elevating, uplifting, influencing, encouraging and telling different beautiful stories
“I’m beyond elated, and I am using this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported and shown me love. To everyone who accepted my music and gave me a chance to inspire and tell beautiful stories.
“And today I’m happy to announce to you that after being an active voting member of the recording academy for years, this Monday, I will be inducted into the Recording Academy (the GRAMMYs®) Governance Board. I will now be a part of the Governors for the Washington DC Chapter board
“I’m most definitely proud of where the music has brought me, proud of the many lives it has touched, proud of the people I’ve been able to inspire and encourage through music. I’m proud of the beautiful stories I’ve been able to tell••you are not doing badly
“I was numb-numb to emotions, numb to life. But there’s one thing about music…where words fail, music speaks. Music provokes lots of emotions and I channeled everything I felt at that point into my music.
“I was at a certain point in my life where everything seemed lost. I was in a state of despair, I was hopeless, unhappy, dejected and scared-scared to fail, scared I wouldn’t make it, scared my music will not be accepted. Life was beginning to feel like a nightmare in a nightmare.”
Congratulations to the talented singer.
