Archiving Angeles (AA): The Grammy Awards


The anti-apartheid message grew louder and was broadcast live on American television, as protesters rallied outside the 27th Annual Grammy Awards at the Shrine Auditorium.

Cyndi Lauper won Best New Artist, while “Weird Al” Yankovic brought home the award for Best Comedy Recording for “Eat It.”

The year was 1985.
