These six nominations are the first For Your Consideration nominations at the Grammys for David Serero, who has been a member of the Recording Academy since 2018. "While I was filming a new movie on the other side of the world, in Madagascar, I was overwhelmed by the news. Though I'm more of a "stage guy," these nominations are giving me so much hope for more recordings to be made, especially for dramatic works. So to have my work acknowledged by the Academy, especially among important colleagues, is already a strong victory for me. God is so good!"
