Faith Evans Nominates Herself For a Grammy

(CBS Local) Faith Evans has faith in Grammy voters but not their sanity. The celebrated R&B singer/songwriter has been nominated for six Grammy awards in her career and says another nomination is in order, that is, if the Academy isn't "crazy."

Evans is no stranger to Grammy pressure and hoopla. In 1998 she, along with Diddy, took home the award for Best Rap Performance By Duo Or Group for "I'll Be Missing You". While she has been nominated several times since, she has yet to take home another Grammy.

When asked who she thinks deserves a nod this year in the R&B categories, Evans pointed to herself. "Normally I wouldn't say this, but I think I should be nominated," she told CBS Local, with a laugh. "It feels funny saying that about myself. But my first single 'Tears of Joy' from Faith Evans R&B Divas album is just one of those songs. If I'm not nominated, the song writer Claude Kelly should be. It's just a great timeless R&B record. It puts me in the mind of Gladys Knight meets Aretha Franklin." A lot more here including video.
