Tyrese, whose "Open Invitation" set was nominated for Best R&B Album, described the acknowledgment as a career highlight. "This is truly one of the greatest nights of my life," he said in a post on Instagram.
Coko Clemons, lead singer for SWV, Tweeted about the honor. "I'm so hyped & excited right now for @LeleeLyons @TajGeorge & myself!!! #GrammyNod!" she wrote.
She was disappointed, however, that she could not celebrate the news with her husband. "Wish I could share with @bigmikeclemons but he's on a flt to Nigeria! Ugh!! He produced that record!!" she posted.
