Video Game Grammy: Civilization 4 Song Wins Grammy

Last night at the Grammy awards, for the first time ever, a song from a video game won a Grammy. Christopher Tin took home a statue for "Baba Yetu" from Civilization 4. The song for "Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists."

Tin won a second Grammy for "Best Classical Crossover Album" for Calling All Dawns, the record that features "Babu Yetu."

"We're so proud of Christopher's Grammy Award victory and what he has accomplished," Video Games Live CEO Tommy Tallarico in a statement this morning. "This historic moment will continue to bridge the gap between mainstream music and video games. It is an honor to perform his music in our show."
