“Who runs the world?”
That was the question Alicia Keys asked during her opening comments. And we all know the answer to that, right?
Girls. Or in this case — women.
And wow, what a fivesome took the stage at the beginning of the Grammys.
Who needs a comedic monologue to open the show when you can surprise the audience with Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez and former first lady Michelle Obama?
Keys called them her “sisters.”
Each spoke about the importance of music, though Obama could barely get into her bit before the audience interrupted her with deafening cheers.
Her message? Music unites.
“Music helps us share ourselves,” Obama said. “It allows us to hear one another.”
If ever the nation needed to hear that, it’s now.
