On Sunday night, during the 65th annual ceremony, Beyoncé won her 32nd trophy for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for her album, ‘Renaissance‘. The award officially takes her past conductor Georg Solti, who long has held the record with 31 competitive wins.
During her acceptance speech she said,
“Thank you so much. I’m trying not to be too emotional. And I’m trying to just receive this night.
“I want to thank God for protecting me. Thank you, God. I’d like to thank my uncle Johnny, who’s not here. But he’s here in spirit. I’d like to thank my parents, my father, my mother, for loving me and pushing me.
Beyoncé added of her husband, JAY-Z, and their kids, 11-year-old Blue and 5-year-old twins Rumi and Sir.
“I’d like to thank my beautiful husband, my beautiful three children who are at home watching.
Beyoncé further said,
“I’d like to thank the queer community for your love and for inventing this genre. God bless you. Thank you so much to the GRAMMYs. Thank you.”
