Nadia Ali stunned by Grammy nomination

2010 has been a massive year for Nadia Ali, singer/songwriter of Pakistani origin, and to top it all off, the Recording Academy announced on December 1, 2010, that the Morgan Page remix of Nadia’s single, “Fantasy,” has received a prestigious Grammy nomination. Written by Nadia and DJ/Producer duo Sultan & Ned Shepard for her studio album “Embers,” Nadia personally sought out Morgan Page to produce a special remix for release on her very own record label, Smile In Bed. When remixer Morgan Page told her the news, Nadia Ali ‘just started shaking, MTV reported. As Ali told MTV News this week, she received the exciting news late last year via a text message from friend and collaborator Los Angeles-based house music producer Morgan Page. “I was actually in Paris, France. I was at the airport. I was on my way to a show in the Ukraine, and I got a text message from Morgan as soon as I landed. And he said, ‘Nadia, check Grammy.com.’ And I was like, ‘Why would Morgan text me to check Grammy.com? Why would he say that?’“He was like, ‘We’re nominated for a Grammy!’ I just started shaking and couldn’t breathe normally. I didn’t start crying, but I did start shaking and going all crazy.” Nadia and Morgan quickly discovered that each has been a huge mutual fan of the other’s work over the years, and the “Fantasy” project has inspired them to come together to work on original music of their own. Brand new original collaborations from Nadia and Morgan are slated for release in 2011. This is the first time one of Nadia’s musical works has received a Grammy nomination, setting a new high water mark in an already remarkable career. Nadia’s musical journey initially started with the duo iiO, with Nadia’s signature voice and songwriting carrying some of the most memorable dance anthems of the past decade. As a solo artist Nadia has continued to grow and release new and groundbreaking music, including a series of hit singles from Embers, numerous acclaimed collaborations and in 2010, her epic Queen Of Clubs trilogy. Her continuous growth as an artist comes as little surprise to the many loyal supporters of this ambitious and visionary singer/songwriter. There is no denying that Nadia’s contribution to the EDM industry is unrivalled and continues to inspire thousands of people around the globe – Dailytimes
