Clifton Chenier Honored at the Grammys
Michael Vital of Loreauville, La. received a Lifetime Achievement Award on behalf of his uncle, Zydeco legend Clifton Chenier (1925-1987), Saturday Jan. 25 at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, Calif.  
A native of St. Landry Parish, Chenier moved to Iberia Parish in the 1940s when he was 15. Chenier was the first Creole to be presented a Grammy award on national television. Blending the French and Cajun two-steps and waltzes of southwest Louisiana with New Orleans R&B, Texas blues, and big-band jazz, 

he created the modern, dance-inspiring, sounds of zydeco.


Vital owns the Clifton Chenier Club in Loreauville, where he will hold the Clifton Chenier Celebration, an annual tribute to his uncle's life and legacy, on June 21.
