Speaker 1: (00:01)
And the Grammy goes to We Are, Jon Batiste.

Jon Batiste: (00:13)
Hey. Wow. Wow. Thank you. You know I really, I believe this to my core, there is no best musician, best artist, best dancer, best actor, the creative arts are subjective and they reach people at a point in their lives when they need it most. It’s like a song or an album is made and it almost has a radar to find the person when they need it the most.

Jon Batiste: (01:37)
I mean, man. I like thank God. I just put my head down and I work on the craft every day. I love music. I’ve been playing since I was a little boy. It’s more than entertainment for me, it’s a spiritual practice. And there’s so many people that went into making this album. My grandfather’s on the album, my nephews, my dad is here.

Jon Batiste: (01:58)
My executive producer, Ryan Lynn right here, come here, man. I don’t want to just be up here by myself. I didn’t do it by myself.

Jon Batiste: (02:06)
Every single artist that was nominated in this category I actually love and have had experiences, out of body experiences, with your music. I honor you. And this is for real artists, real musicians. Let’s just keep going. Be you. That’s it. I love you even if I don’t know you.

Jon Batiste: (02:28)
Good night. Hey.
