Wichita, Kansas (KSNW) — The 2022 Grammy Award nominations were recently announced and Wichita’s name was added to the list.
Roy Moe, III, never imagined he would be nominated for a Grammy Award. He is grateful to be able to participate in a project where children can see themselves in music teaching science and technology.
“It’s really crazy to be a Grammy-nominated artist,” Moye said. “It’s a dream come true … especially to be celebrated with a job I’m very passionate about, because every music artist who really wants to do it professionally, the Grammy Awards, that’s our Super Bowl. That’s why. ”
Moye is more than just a local artist here in Wichita. He sings the national anthem of Kansas City Royals and Chiefs. He is also a participant in BET’s “Sunday Best”.
“I’m a gospel artist and spent some time in R & B, and STEM Music aims to reach the next generation of black and brown kids.”
Currently, he is a Grammy-nominated artist who writes and sings the song “Black Lives Made STEM History” to teach children about science and technology. As black and Latin men working in aviation, Moye said black and brown people are often underestimated in science and technology.
“It’s very important to me to use music and share it with the next generation of children,” Moye said. “It’s much of this passion and this mission in my life.”
Moye is a member of Group 1 Tribe Collective. There are 26 artists from all over the country. Their album “All One Tribe” has been nominated for Best Children’s Music Album. This is a reaction to the 2020 Black Lives Matter protest.
“We stood up in our own voice,” Moe said. “We took a gift and showed it.” Hey, freedom is what we need. Respect is what we need and we are all one tribe doing this together. It’s a powerful statement. ”
The Grammy Awards will be on January 31st and Moye will attend the ceremony in Los Angeles. Moye’s song “Black Lives Made STEM History” is available on all streaming platforms.
