Grammy Gold

After a whiplash of effortlessly popular songs, Warwick received her first Grammy Award in 1968 for the mega-hit "Do You Know the Way to San Jose?" and a second Grammy for the best-selling album I'll Never Fall in Love Again in 1970. The singing sensation became the first African-American solo female artist of her generation to win the award for Best Contemporary Female Vocalist Performance.
