Category:Adult Contemporary Album of the Year
Sarah McLachlan is one of the most celebrated singer songwriters in entertainment with over 40 million albums sold worldwide. She is a ten-time JUNO Award winner and a three-time Grammy Award winner. McLachlan’s landmark fifth album, the 10x-platinum Surfacing, contained two Grammy Award-winning tracks, “Building a Mystery” and “Last Dance.”
In addition to her personal artistic efforts, she founded the Lilith Fair tour, which showcased female musicians and raised over $7 million for local and national charities. In 2002 McLachlan founded her non-profit organization, the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, which provides top quality music instruction at no cost, in a safe and nurturing environment, for at-risk and underserved children and youth. From an early age, music provided McLachlan with the tools she needed to navigate the challenges she faced in her life, so she recognizes how important it is for every child to have those same opportunities.
McLachlan’s latest release is her new 2016 Christmas album Wonderland. Wonderland contains fresh and inspired interpretations of 13 traditional and contemporary holiday classics.
