It is every artist dream to go big with their talent, but we are sure for some of our Mzansi artist going big simple means having local gigs now and then.
Brown Brenton is one of those artists who never thought his music can really make it big outside of South Africa.
Brenton composed a song, which was recorded by US Southern-roots rock group Third Day on their latest album, Lead Us Back. It has been selected in the best contemporary Christian music performance or song category.
The song will contest against four other hits: Holy Spirit by Francesca Battistelli, Lift Your Head Weary Sinner by Crowder, Because He Lives by Matt Maher and Feel It by Tobymac featuring Mr Talkbox.
Brown said he was "still in shock" after receiving the wonderful news.
"It's been an incredible year. As a young musician, my goal was just to make a living playing the music I love. To have that music recognised at the Grammys is crazy," he said.
"After calling my parents, the first person I got in touch with was my high school music teacher, Sandee Grieve.
“I guess practising scales really does pay off."
The Grammys will air live at 3am on Channel O on DStv on Tuesday, with a repeat at 7pm.
Thank you for making Mzansi proud Brown
