Though she did not walk away with the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album on Sunday, Spice is still “very humbled and grateful” for how far she has come as a recording artiste.
Spice, whose given name is Grace Hamilton, told her fans, “Don’t cry,” in an Instagram post after it was announced that American band SOJA had copped the award at the 64th annual Grammy Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
SOJA won for their album ‘Beauty in the Silence’.
“Besties, don’t cry, we’ve come a long way,” the post on Spice’s Instagram page read. “Remember, I came from homeless to this day, so I’m really still very humbled and grateful.
“I see all your support and disappointments, but you know we never give up, we back at it again tomorrow!!” she added. “I love you all so much, watch little Gracie pan Grammy red Carpet.”
