Vladimír Mišík dominates 2019 Anděl Music Awards

Singer songwriter Vladimír Mišík was the big winner at the annual Anděl music awards on Saturdaynight. The Czech music legend, who turned 72 this year, took the prizes in six categories, including the best male singer of the year.

His LP Jednou tě potkám or I’ll meet you one day was voted the best abum of the year. He also won the awards for best song and best video for Jednou, and prizes in the rock and folk categories.

Leading music critic Jiří Černý has been inducted in the hall of fame. The female singer of the year award went to Beata Hlavenková.

The Anděl awards are decided by the members of the Czech Academy of Music and are a local equivalent of the Grammys. This year, the awards ceremony took place without the public due to restrictions related to the coronavirus outbreak.
