Jennifer Gasoi, a Canadian songwriter, won the Grammy Award for “Best Children’s Album” on Sunday, beating out Medford’s Alastair Moock in the category.

Gasoi won for her album “Throw A Penny In The Wishing Well.”

Moock was nominated for “Singing Our Way Through: Songs For The World’s Bravest Kids,” which was inspired and co-written by his 7-year-old daughter Clio, who was diagnosed with leukemia in July 2012.

The other nominees in the category:

  • Elizabeth Mitchell & Your Are My Flower, “Blue Clouds”
  • Beth Nielsen Chapman, “The Mighty Sky”
  • Justin Roberts, “Recess”

The “Best Children’s Album” award was given out prior to the televised portion of the 56th Grammy Awards on CBS on Sunday night.
