Two Grammys for Swedish Musicians
Three Swedes took prizes at the American Grammy Awards held Sunday night in Los Angeles.
Opera singer Ann Sofie von Otter received the prize for best classical album. The mezzo-soprano shared it with pianist Bengt Forsberg for an album called "Douce France."
The long-time pop producer and Swede, Max Martin, won the Grammy for best producer. Martin was awarded the prize for work in songs like Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off" and Katy Perry's "Dark Horse." Swedish daily tabloid Aftonbladet reported that during his 20-year-career Martin has produced a total of 19 songs that have reached first place on the American Billboard list.
