BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Two Buffalo connections will make their presence known at the Grammys in California on Monday, with one local even claiming victory in a Grammy win.
Kevin Camp, a 29-year-old Buffalo man, has been performing music since he was a child, and now produces music for popular gospel music group Israel & NewBreed. An album, produced by Camp, was just named the ‘Best Gospel Album of the Year” at the Grammy presentation.
Camp’s album, titled Covered: Alive In Asia [Live], was released in July of 2015, and made it to the top spot on the gospel album charts within the month.
The group, which travels the world, was nominated for three Grammy awards in 2015, and came away with this victory.
Another local musician will make his mark at the Grammy celebrations, as he’s done for more than a decade. Justin DiCioccio attended on Monday, and will conduct the Grammy Jazz Session Band following the awards presentations.
DiCioccio is a Buffalo Music Hall of Fame conductor who has been invited to conduct at The White House and has had a lengthy career in the music business.
