Moments after winning Best New Artist at the 2016 Grammys, Meghan Trainor posted an Instagram photo of her speech with a touching note to her family.

“This is me forever… balling my eyes out,” she wrote in the photo’s caption. “Can’t believe what happened. My dad whispered ‘you made it’ before I walked up and I lost it. I love my family so much. Without them I wouldn’t be here today. Thank you to my team and everyone who got me here. Gonna cry happy tears all night.”

Trainor bested Sam Hunt, Tori Kelly, James Bay, and Courtney Barnett for the Best New Artist honor, marking her first Grammy win.

During her emotional speech, Trainor gave a special thanks to her parents.
