Stephen Bray nominated for a Grammy
In case anyone missed it, about a year ago we informed everyone about Madonna’s former collaborator Stephen Bray (Into The Groove, True Blue, Express Yourself, Keep It Together) being one of the composers & lyricists for the musical version of “The Color Purple“.
Well it looks like Steven has now been nominated for a 49th Annual Grammy for his production work on that musical!
