11 Feb: Students get career inspiration from Grammy tour

One of the biggest nights in music took place Sunday in Los Angeles: the 61st Annual Grammy Awards®. The show brought together celebrities and some of the most well-known artists in music from across all genres.

It took a lot of technology and expertise to pull it all off — a great example for teens interested in related careers.

A group of such students was able to get an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the action, thanks to Best Buy and corporate partners at JBL.
