Daughters of Late Beatles Mentor Accept Posthumous Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.10.2013



Ravi Shankar's posthumous Lifetime Achivement Grammy Award was accepted by his daughters, Anoushka Shankar and award-winning singer Norah Jones, at a pre-Grammy event in Los Angeles on February 9.

Anoushka Shankar and Norah Jones accepted the award on behalf of their late father at a ceremony held at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in California. Their father, Shankar, died a week after he received word he was getting the award. He passed away on December 11, 2012. Speaking on her father, Jones said: "We know he was very excited to be receiving this award. We really miss him. He lived and breathed music. He was tapping out rhythms on the breakfast table and making me do five over seven…I am still trying to get it. We are very happy to accept the award for him."

Her sister, Anoushka said: "It was 60 days ago today that he passed away. It's kind of difficult to be standing up here, like Norah said, I am thrilled that he knew about this award before he passed away at least. But I wish we weren't standing up here for him."

Other receipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013 included singer-songwriter Carole King, the late pianist Glenn Gould, jazz musician Charlie Hade, the late blues musician Lightin' Hopkins, singer Patti Page, and Motown group The Temptations.
