Delta State University students Katie Gibson of Summerdale, Ala., and Joanna Sabine of Columbia, were invited to participate as production assistants for the 4th Annual Mississippi Grammy™ Legacy Celebration recently held at the Hard Rock Live! venue in Biloxi.

Gibson and Sabine are members of the Delta State Grammy U chapter and are enrolled in courses at the Delta Music Institute (DMI), a recording arts and music industry studies program at Delta State University.

The annual gala event celebrates the state’s Grammy™ winners and their musical legacies. Mississippi boasts more Grammy™ winner per capita than any other state in the union.

The GRAMMY University Network (GRAMMY U) is a unique and fast-growing community of college students who are pursuing a career in the music industry. The Recording AcademyY created GRAMMY U to help prepare students for careers in the recording industry through networking, educational programs and performance opportunities. GRAMMY U is designed to enhance students’ current academic curriculum with access to recording industry professionals to give an “out of classroom” perspective on the recording industry. Delta Music Institute’s Grammy U chapter was formed in the fall of 2008 and now has over 50 members.

The Delta Music Institute is an independent center of study under the College of Arts & Sciences at Delta State University. The focus of the DMI is to provide students with a broad and thorough education in the technological, creative, and business areas of the music and entertainment industry.

  1. Nkoy | (00:24) Cesar Ngadi heureusement tu n’es pas un journaliste professionel c’est honteux et malsain de croire qu’une telle mere pouvait dire quelque chose de bon d’abord ses dires viennent contredire ce que les enfants avaient dit autrefois en parlant de punition… En plus c’est etonnant qu’une tellle mere ait pu acheter un billet full valant une annee au prix affiché dans les soi disant preuve que les enfants avaient fourni toujours sur ce site

  3. “…more Grammy winners per capita” — that’s quite a distinction! Just another reason to be proud of the state I called home for two years. Long enough to get Mississippi under my skin, although I learned to love it long before that, thanks to my old friend, your DMI Director, Tricia Walker! Congrats to all of you on your achievements. Go, DMI!
