Music icon Bonnie Raitt herself was visibly shocked when she won the prestigious Grammy Award for Song of the Year. Receiving the award from America's First Lady, Jill Biden, the singer called this her victory an "unreal moment".

"My God, I'm so surprised." I don't know what to say, this is just an unreal moment," said 73-year-old Wright.

And indeed it was, her ballad about a heart transplant surpassed the mega-hits of Lizzo's "About Damn Time", Harry Styles' "As It Was", Beyoncé's "Break My Soul" and Taylor Swift's "All Too Well (10 Minute Version)".

Accepting the award, Wright thanked the Academy for the honor and for appreciating the art of songwriting.


Just Like That is released April 2022. It also appeared on the album of the same name, which peaked at number 44 on the Billboard Top 200. The song was written by Bonnie, and as she says, inspired the story of the woman who gave her deceased son's heart to another child. Bonnie dedicated the song to her friend and colleague John Prine, who died in 2020 after battling the coronavirus.

"I was inspired for this song by the incredible story of love, mercy and generosity of someone who donates organs from their loved one to help another person survive. This story is so simple and so beautiful for these times," Bonnie Raitt said, adding: "And people responded to the song, partly because I love him and we all love John, and that was the inspiration for the music for this song."
