Taylor Swift has made history at the 2024 Grammy Awards. The singer-songwriter superstar is the first artist to win best album of the year four times. The Grammys are given for outstanding achievements in the music industry. By winning for the fourth time, Ms Swift overtook music legends Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder. She won for her album "Midnights". In her acceptance speech, she said: "I would love to tell you that this is the best moment of my life, but I feel this happy when I finish a song…or when I'm rehearsing with my dancers or my band, or getting ready to go to Tokyo to play a show." She added: "All I wanna do is keep being able to do this. I love it so much. It makes me so happy." Taylor Swift was born in 1989. She began writing songs professionally at the age of 14. In 2005, she signed with Big Machine Records to become a country singer. Since then, she has branched out into a variety of music styles. She has moved from country, to rock, to electronic, synth-pop and hip-hop. She is now the biggest music star in the world and has sold over 200 million records. A movie of her 2023-2024 concert tour "Eras" is the highest-grossing concert film ever. She is also a huge influencer of popular culture and is on Forbes magazine's list of the World's 100 Most Powerful Women. Wikipedia describes Swift as being, "a philanthropist and an advocate for artists' rights and women's empowerment".
