Michelle Obama joined Grammys host Alicia Keys along with Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Jada Pinkett-Smith at the Grammys 2019.
Michelle held hands on stage with Jennifer Lopez as Keys brought in some serious heavyweight star power for her first stint as Grammys host.
The ladies appeared on stage to talk about the important role that music had played in their lives.
Music is what we all love, music is what it’s all about. Everybody is out here shining and I’m so proud to bring us together to honour this moment because music is what we cry to, it’s what we march to, it’s what we rock to, it’s what we make love to. It’s our shared global language,’ Alicia told the audience.
Michelle, 55, is in the middle of her huge book tour but made a special appearance for her pal Alicia.
From the Motown records I wore out on the South Side to the Who Run the World songs that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story, and I know that’s true for everybody here,Obama said.
The mother-of-two continued: ‘Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrows, our hopes and joys. It allows us to hear one another to invite each other in.
Music shows us that all of it matters — every story within every voice, every note within every song.
