Vassy and Alexia Considered for Grammys

Vassy and Alexia are considered for the 56th Grammy Awards

Greek-Australian singer and songwriter Vassy and Cypriot singer/songwriter Alexia Vassiliou are considered for a Grammy nomination.

“We Are Young,” the hit-song by Vassy that has topped Billboard charts in the USA and abroad is considered in the “Best Dance Recording” and “Best new Artist” categories.

“I know I’m up against the biggest so its a long shot but either way I’m happy for this experience and I am enjoying the journey,” says Vassy.

“Birds Have to Fly,” the new Album by Alexia Vassiliou & Peter Massink is considered for a nomination in the “Best Jazz Vocal Album” category.

Vasilliki Karagiorgos was born in Darwin, Australia and is known mononymously as Vassy. She is a Greek-Australian R&B singer-songwriter. Vassy, whose parents are both Greek immigrants, was discovered in 2003 after winning an Australian (Triple J) radio contest and quickly began to receive recognition in Australia for her vocal talent and style, heavily influenced by Billie Holiday. Vassy moved to Hollywood, CA in 2009 and since then has received international praise by critics and fans. Her songs have been featured in motion pictures and hit TV Shows.

Touted as one of Greece’s national treasures, Alexia is a soulful and versatile singer, songwriter, performer, musician with a series of gold and platinum records to her credit.Originally from Famagusta, Cyprus, Alexia’s childhood was interrupted when her homeland fell under siege. The 1974 Turkish invasion and subsequent occupation of the land of her birth rendered refugees of her, her entire family, and countless other Cypriot Greeks.

Music’s Biggest Night, the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards, will return to Los Angeles’ Staples Center on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014, and will be broadcast on the CBS Television Network from 8–11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

The GRAMMY Awards telecast is one of television’s major broadcast events, ranking as one of the highest-rated and most-watched specials.
