Female artists with most Grammy awards

Grammy has been the dream of artists in the industry of music since 1959 marking its beginning. However, the recording company did not seem to be fueling the dreams of female artists.

Even though, every year the company saw hundreds of Grammy nominations, the number of female artists as Grammy winners has been considerably low. Furthermore, Grammy has been witnessing an under-representation of female artists as winners.

Amongst the fourteen artists with the highest number of Grammy awards, only two women made it to the list.

The under-representation of women came into the limelight back in 2018. In the Grammy’s back in 2018, Alessia Cara became the only female artist to receive the prestigious award.

The recording company faced flak with hashtag #GrammySoMale that went viral in the same year. Adding to the controversy, Neil Portnow, the President of the recording company stated that women should step up for getting awards as men do. Following his statement, Portnow faced criticism from around the globe.

Slamming Portnow for his words, singer and songwriter, Pink stated how female artists have been growing. Moreover, she emphasised that women have also been stepping aside and doing well despite all odds.

American musician, Sheryl Crow expressed her wish for the Grammys to come back for male/female categories. Furthermore, she expressed her concern over inspiring young girls with poor female representation in the Grammys.

However, Portnow took to apologize for his poor selection of words later.

The woman with the highest number of Grammys is Alison Krauss with 27 awards making to the third-highest Grammy-winning artist. Next to Kraus is singer Beyonce receiving 23 Grammy awards and making it to the eighth artist with most Grammys.

Artists like Aretha Franklin, Adele (Adele Laurie Blue Adkins), Alicia Keys also made it to highly awarded female artists.

Furthermore, the talent of the female artist is evident in the nominations and performances in the Grammy Awards for 2020.

Notably, Aretha Franklin has won 18 Grammys followed by Adele and Alicia Keys who have won 15 Grammys each. Female artists like Ella Fitzgerald, Emmylou Harris, and Leontyne Price have each won 13 Grammys.

Succeeding the list, CeCe Winans, Shirley Caesar, and Chaka Khan won 12, 11, and 10 Grammys respectively. Artists with 10 Grammy awards are Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Judith Sherman, and Taylor Swift.
