While accepting the Best Contemporary Blues Album Grammy for Please Don't Be Dead, Fantastic Negrito gave a shout-out to the Tiny Desk concerts series, which he said changed the course of his life and offered hope when he'd almost given up.

As we approach 11 years and more than 800 concerts behind my desk, all of us at NPR Music feel proud of championing the artists we're passionate about, including Kacey Musgraves, Anderson .Paak, Brandi Carlile, Leon Bridges, Punch Brothers, St. Vincent and, of course, Fantastic Negrito.

We're thrilled that this crop of talent will be recognized by an even larger audience. Congratulations to the night's winners!
