Less than a week before the Grammy Awards, at least one nominee knows what he's wearing: something artfully draped, a flowing fabric and a color bound to be distinctive on the red carpet, saffron. Lama Tashi, a Buddhist monk from the Himalayas, is nominated for his album of Tibetan master chants. Back at the mountain monastery they're praying for a win.

Something artfully draped, a flowing fabric, and a color bound to be distinctive on the red carpet, saffron. Lama Tashi is a Buddhist monk from the Himalayas, nominated for his album of Tibetan master chants. Back at the mountain monestary, they're praying for a win. It's MORNING EDITION.
