Alicia Keys who played host to the 2019 Grammys Awards brought a squad of powerful women in showbiz and politics to talk music
If you haven’t heard, Multiple award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir scooped up the Best World Music Album trophy for their album “Freedom” at the 61st Grammy Awards, held at a glittering event in Los Angeles last night. It’s a great milestone for South Africa as this is the choir’s third Grammys win. In addition, one of the highlights of the event was when Alicia Keys brought Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Jennifer Lopez on stage to share how music impacted their lives. “They said I was weird,” Lady Gaga shared, “that my look, my choices, my sound wouldn’t work, but music told me not to listen to them.”
The ladies have worked hard to be where they are and for them to be on one stage, was, according to me a defining moment in Grammys’ history.
