Lady Gaga Accepts the Big Man of the Year Award
Lady Gaga goes all black as she walks into the Edison Ballroom on Thursday (October 21) in New York City.
The 25-year-old superstar was honored that night with the Big Man of the Year award for her work in music education at the Little Kids Rock benefit.
Gaga received the award from the wife of Clarence Clemmons, who played the saxophone solo in “The Edge of Glory,” and passed away this past summer.
“My first experience with music was my father playing a vinyl of the E Street Band,” Gaga said in her acceptance speech.
“I knew every time the song played that my grandpa was looking down and thanking me [for]… the gift I had given to my father by having Clarence on that record,” Gaga continued.
“There is no edge when it comes to Clarence‘s glory,” she finished.
