A local music legend is up for a Grammy Award Sunday night.

Go-go may not have caught on outside this area, but it thrives here, and its godfather is getting recognition.

Chuck Brown was nominated in the category Best R&B Performance By a Duo or Group With Vocals for the song “Love,” a collaboration with Jill Scott and Marcus Miller. The song is from Brown’s release “We Got This” – a 20-minute studio EP plus a CD and a DVD of a live performance at 9:30 Club.

Two other nominees are from the area. Carolyn Malachi was nominated for Best Urban/Alternative Performance for “Orion,” and Raheem DeVaughn was nominated for Best R&B Album for “The Love & War Masterpiece.”
