First Video Game Track Nominated For Grammy
Posted on Monday, December 6 @ 09:37:34 Eastern by Nicholas TanComposer Christopher Tin, known for his music for other video games, movies, and commercials, has been nominated for a Grammy for the title track for Civilization IV called "Baba Yetu" in the "Best Instrumental Arrangement Vocalists" category. This marks the first time that a video game track has been nominated for a Grammy. (The video below isn't the official music video for the song, but it's the The Lion King II... which wins.)
A nomination this late, considering that Civilization IV released in 2005, seems surprising. But with the song featuring the famous Soweto Gospel Choir (who are also known for "Hiohonolofatsa", because I just know crazy things like that), professional choirs have popularized "Baba Yetu". Thus the historical moment... only now.
