Marion Aunor is the newest member of The Recording Academy, the organization behind the preeminent peer-recognized award for musical excellence and the most credible brand in music -- the GRAMMY Awards.
On Thursday, June 8, Marion, who is behind the hits like "How Can I" and "Free Fall Into Love," took to Instagram to share screengrabs of the e-mail sent by the organization.
"Officially a member of the Recording Academy," Marion wrote in the caption.
Congratulatory comments quickly flooded her post including one from Moophs, whom she has a collaboration with that is set to be released soon.
"Awesome!!" said the DJ.
OneMusicPH, on the same day, got a chance to ask Marion about it and here's what she said:
"I'm not sure what to say haha I applied for a membership cause I met someone at the ASCAP EXPO, the songwriting convention I attended last April, who convinced me to join. There were certain qualifications though. They had to evaluate your music, web presence, and all that.
"Then just recently I found out my application was approved so I guess I passed their standards?" she shared.
Here's a YouTube playlist of Marion's music for you to find out why and how she made it to The Recording Academy:
