WINTER PARK, Fla. – Central Florida students often go on to make waves in the entertainment business, including 12 Full Sail University graduates who were involved in Grammy Award-winning projects honored during Sunday's award show.

Former Full Sail recording arts major Jordan "DJ Swivel" Young earned a Grammy Award for his work mixing and producing the song "Don't Let Me Down" by the The Chainsmokers featuring Daya. Young won for Best Dance Recording.

Full Sail graduates were part of the recording process for a number of 59th annual Grammy Award-winning artists, including Beyoncé, Maren Morris, Twenty One Pilots and Willie Nelson, according to the university.

“Each year we are proud to join together as a university community to honor and celebrate the many Full Sail University graduates who have contributed to Grammy-nominated and award-winning projects,” Full Sail University education director for audio arts Dana Roun said.

Full Sail University said its graduates have "mixed, recorded or assisted" in 19 Grammy-winning albums of the year in the last 27 years.
