GALLERY: El Paso’s own Khalid Wins MTV’s VMA Best New Artist

Sunday night, El Paso’s own Khalid won MTV VMA’s Best New Artist Award.

During his acceptance speech, he thanked his hometown saying “I gotta thank the City of El Paso for standing behind me…this isn’t (just) for me…this is for the city.”

The past year has been a rocketship ride for the teen, with his album ‘American Teen’ taking the region, and the country by storm.

Even with all the newfound fame, Khalid made time for his hometown fans at various appearances and concerts, even headlining this summer’s Neon Desert Music Fest.

Congrats to Khalid on his awesome year and his win!
