Jaws dropped at the Grammy Awards when former US First Lady, Michelle Obama made a surprise appearance.
The 61st Grammy Awards held at Staples Centre in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
As Ms. Obama appeared on stage, joined by the host Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett- Smith, and Jennifer Lopez, fans screamed and blew kisses to the former first lady. She smiled before saying ‘We’ve got a show to do!’ and began laughing with her co-presenters.
She went on to pay a tribute to Motown and Beyonce, saying:
From the Motown records that I wore out on the Southside, 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 everyone here.
Music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrows, our hopes our 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.
A big part of friendship is showing up for your girls—that’s why I was thrilled to be there for the one and only @aliciakeys at the #GRAMMYs. She is one of the most genuine and thoughtful people I know—there’s no one better to help us all celebrate the unifying power of music! pic.twitter.com/8cMhTmsClA— Michelle Obama (@MichelleObama) February 11, 2019
