On Wednesday, the Recording Academy made its much-anticipated announcement of the 62nd class of Grammy Awards nominees, set to be awarded Jan. 26, 2020. The annual music awards honor outstanding music across genres and disciplines in 84 categories, from song of the year through best world music album, classical composers and your favorite artists, tracks and albums in pop, country, rap, rock and more.

This year, the Grammy nominees, lead by Lizzo with eight nominations, include nearly 40 artists who have been open about living with a mental health issue, chronic illness or disability. When celebrities use their platform to share their health journey, they help destigmatize living with a complicated condition or disability and make it easier for others to speak up and reach out for help.

To celebrate the artists who make a difference for those living with health conditions, here are 38 Grammy nominees open about their health:

1. Bon Iver

Posted by Bon Iver on Saturday, October 5, 2019

Bon Iver is an indie folk band fronted by musician Justin Vernon. Nominated for several Grammys this year, including Album of the Year for “i,i,” Vernon shared the album was inspired in part by his anxiety.

“I’ve never had [anxiety] before, [I] never quite understood what it could do to people. It really got me. I was stunned by it,” Vernon said on an episode of Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show. “That’s sort of the story [of the record] for me… [It’s about] getting through some tough times and getting to a point where you can feel vulnerable and grateful.”

Bon Iver is nominated for record of the year, album of the year and best alternative music album.

A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

“Thank U, Next” singer Ariana Grande has shared in interviews and on social media about living with mental health issues like depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

“[Anxiety is] just in your head and that’s just so crazy how powerful it is — no matter how good things are, it can totally change everything,” Grande previously told the BBC. “It takes hard work and practice and therapy and self-care and so much love.”

lmaoaoo this is funny as fuck but in all honesty therapy has saved my life so many times. if you’re afraid to ask for help, don’t be. u don’t have to be in constant pain & u can process trauma. i’ve got a lot of work to do but it’s a start to even be aware that it’s possible. ???? https://t.co/XiytR3xE0O

A post shared by Lizzo (@lizzobeeating) on

The top nominee for this year’s Grammys, “Truth Hurts” singer Lizzo said she struggles with anxiety and body image issues due to a lack of larger-sized bodies in the media.

“When I get really, really anxious before a show, I just go harder and harder and harder when I’m performing and I just go crazy,” Lizzo told British Vogue, adding:

I don’t know why, but my anxiety sometimes fuels who I am as a performer and who I am as an artist. I don’t know if my body just, like, out of a desperate need to find a place for my anxiety or find a use for it, takes it and puts it there.

Lizzo is nominated for record of the year, album of the year, song of the year, best new artist, best pop solo performance, best R&B performance, best traditional R&B performance and best urban contemporary album.

The queen of “Summertime Sadness” Lana Del Rey shared in 2014 she was struggling with a chronic condition that doctors couldn’t diagnose, which also took a toll on her mental health.

“I’d been sick on tour for about two years with this medical anomaly that doctors couldn’t figure out,” Del Rey told the Fader. “That’s a big part of my life: I just feel really sick a lot of the time and can’t figure out why. … It was just heavy.”

Lady Gaga, who earned her Grammys nods this year for “A Star Is Born,” lives with fibromyalgia and mental health conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after surviving sexual assault.

“I get so irritated with people who don’t believe fibromyalgia is real,” Gaga told Vogue in 2018. She added:

For me, and I think for many others, it’s really a cyclone of anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, and panic disorder, all of which sends the nervous system into overdrive, and then you have nerve pain as a result. People need to be more compassionate. Chronic pain is no joke. And it’s every day waking up not knowing how you’re going to feel.

Gaga is nominated for song of the year, best compilation soundtrack for visual media and best song written for visual media.

You wake up one day and you don’t want to get out of bed? Maybe you’re not a loser. Maybe you’re not lazy. Maybe you’re depressed. A lot of those things I forgave myself for later in life.”

14 years ago this month I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. This experience has shaped how I approach my health – working out, eating well, and always thinking about my blood sugar and insulin needs. You can’t always see what goes into managing an invisible illness, and Type 1 diabetes can feel lonely and isolating. That’s why I co-founded @BeyondType1 in 2015, to make sure no one feels alone with this diagnosis and to share how you can thrive with Type 1 diabetes. November is Diabetes Awareness Month – join us at Beyond Type 1 by sharing how diabetes has impacted your life using #TheDropSpotted. I’m so grateful to my fans for your support and kindness!

The Jonas Brothers are nominated for best pop duo/group performance.

. They have intelligence but they can’t speak to us, instead they choose to love and give themselves unconditionally. As Victor Hugo wrote they remain the truest representation of virtue – virtue that, unable to become man, became animal. . Sanno ma non dicono, scelgono invece di amare e donare se stessi, incondizionatamente… e, come ha scritto Victor Hugo, restano il miglior sinonimo della virtù. Virtù che non potendo farsi uomo, si è fatta animale.

Known for his rich operatic voice, Andrea Bocelli was born with congenital glaucoma, and had partial vision, before he became completely blind at age 12 after being hit in the head. During a 2010 concert, Bocelli thanked his mom for not having an abortion before he was born, despite pressure from her doctors.

“The doctors had to apply some ice on her stomach and when the treatments ended the doctors suggested that she abort the child,” he said. “Maybe I’m partisan, but I can say that it was the right choice and I hope that this could encourage many mothers who sometimes might find themselves in difficult situations but want to save the life of their baby.”

Bocelli is nominated for best traditional pop vocal album.

Metalcore lead singer Jesse Leach of Killswitch Engage was nominated for a metal Grammy this year, revealed he lives with anxiety and depression that he now manages with therapy.

I was like that for years. I either wanted to sleep or disappear. But when you have a language to put to it — like the doctor did with their diagnosis of me — you start to gain tools and methods in how to deal with it.”
