Review: Grammy winner Tracy Young spotlighted on ‘The Donna Drake Show’ (Includes first-hand account)

Both ladies spoke about Young’s historic Grammy win for “Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical” for Madonna’s “I Rise” (Tracy Young’s Pride Into Radio Remix). Young was able to break the glass ceiling and she became the first woman to be nominated in this category, and most importantly, take home the coveted Grammy Award. She accepted it on behalf of all the female producers that have been overlooked. “I didn’t even know that I was the first woman nominated,” she said. “I hope more women produce music. We need you,” she exclaimed.

Donna Drake was able to delve beyond the surface, and she found out what inspired Young and what drove her to become the icon that she is today in the music industry. “I had a passion at a very young age for music,” she admitted. “My grandfather was in radio. I was always around music, radio and engineering, and I fell in love with it at eight years old.”

Young shared that she always enjoys playing Madonna’s musical catalog and celebrating the artistry of the “Queen of Pop.” “Madonna is a woman that has done so much for so many people: women, African Americans and the LGBTQ community,” she said.
