“Got my invite to the GRAMMYS!”

This is what singer Marion Aunor announced to her followers on Instagram along with a first look on her RSVP from the prestigious award-giving body last Monday.

To be held on February 10 in Los Angeles, California, the ceremony will most definitely see the 26-year-old Filipina who is set to attend as a member of the Recording Academy, the body that facilitates the Grammy Awards every year. 

 

“So grateful and blessed to be given a chance to go as member of the Recording Academy! Thank you, Lord!,” said Marion, revealing that she was originally about to go last year but was unfortunately struck down with illness.

This news came right after internationally acclaimed singer and actress Lea Salonga was recognized by the Grammy Awards as the first-ever Filipina nominee for the Best Musical Theater Album as part of the musical cast of Once On This Island just in December last year.

A niece of singer and actress Nora Aunor, Marion has been actively creating music for the past five years following her successful stint in Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs in 2013, in which she finished in the third spot. During her time with record label Star Records, she released her first-ever self-titled album and returned to the songwriting competition to perform the official entry Pumapag-Ibig composed by one of the 2014 finalists, writer Jungee Marcelo.

On February 13, 2018, Marion — who is best known for her hits Akala and soulful renditions of You Don’t Know Me and I Love You Always Forever, among her many other songs — moved on to sign with Viva Records.
