    Bon Iver Wins Two Grammy Awards


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     JoyfulGypsy, a professional photographer from New York City, has been to the Grammy Awards about eight times before. 'We know the whole routine now,' she says. This time she was able to snap a few photos to share. 'It was a very exciting night, everyone was in a great mood. It was nice to be able to attend,' she says.

    I was fortunate to attend the 54th Grammy Awards, as the singing group that my husband manages, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, was nominated for best Traditional World Music Album for their album "Songs From a Zulu Farm." Ladysmith Black Mambazo has won three Grammy Awards.


    Here are some pictures I took with the tiny point and shoot camera I was allowed to take in with me.


    Bon Iver won two Grammys Awards for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album.


    Lead singer Justin Vernon said, "It's really hard to accept this award," he began his slightly awkward acceptance speech. "There's so much talent out here... and there's a lot of talent that's not here tonight. It's also hard to accept because you know, when I started to make songs I did it for the inherent reward of making songs, so I'm a little bit uncomfortable up here."
