SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) – Two teenagers from Utah are getting the chance most people their age could only dream of. The teens have won back stage passes to the Grammys.
Through an after school program called Spy Hop, the teens were introduced to each other, given a studio and 10 months to record an album. A song on that album, about substance abuse, was good enough to win them two global awards-- one through the Grammy Foundation.
"It was probably one of the best experiences of my life,” said Vinny Cavalcanti, a West High School student.
"At the beginning it's pretty awkward because none of us knew each other, we just come from very different places musically and personally, but by the end we were all good friends,” said Nick Miller, a Rowland Hall student.
This week they'll get to travel to LA, watch Grammy rehearsals and go back stage of the big show.
