— 3X GRAMMY® Nominee Terry Hunter
CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, November 13, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Chicago’s Terry Hunter of the Chosen Few DJ Collective received a GRAMMY® nomination in the Best Remixed Recording category for Mariah Carey’s “Working Hard (Terry Hunter Remix).” The track appears on Carey’s Music Box: 30th Anniversary Edition. Hunter was nominated by his peers of producers and engineers for his remix of the song. His production of Jennifer Hudson’s “It’s Your World” was nominated in 2014; however, it is Hunter’s 2nd nomination as a Remixer. In 2022, he was nominated for “Break My Soul (Terry Hunter Remix)” by Beyoncé. In addition to these notable productions, Terry has produced and remixed at the request of a laundry list of legendary ladies, including Jill Scott, Chantay Savage, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, and now Mariah Carey, earning him the moniker “The Divas’ Choice.”

The journey to the nomination began this summer during the 31st Anniversary of the Chosen Few Picnic. Terry debuted his ‘Mariah remix’ before an audience of 30,000 in the rain to instant acclaim. Riding the wave of last year’s nomination with Beyoncé, Hunter’s remix of the thirty-year-old song brought an authentic house music production to the record, which was previously recorded by C & C Music Factory in the 90s but was never released.
“ This nomination is for Chicago and the global house community worldwide. It’s an honor to return to the 66th GRAMMYs® as part of Mariah’s 30th Anniversary album!”
