'Music is what we all love, music is what it's all about. There was a standing O for Mrs.
The former first lady shocked attendees of the 2019 GRAMMY Awards when she took the stage with Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Jada Pinkett Smith and host Alicia Keys to deliver a moving message about the power of music.
Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Michelle Obama joined Keys on stage for an ode to music and sisterhood.
Speaking about the power of music to unite people, Michelle continued: "Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves and shows us that all of it matters".

Another viewer thought she might have said "mango" instead. Whatever IT is, she's got it.
Lady Gaga used that moment to address mental health, which is a major subject of "A Star is Born". The other ladies too shared their thoughts about music. "They said I was weird". "We gotta take care of each other".

Keys, armed with not one but two pianos, played her own original hit ("Empire State of Mind"), as well as a wide-ranging medley of cover songs.
If you ask Alicia Keys, 38, to host your awards show, she's going to kick off the show in an awesome way. In the closer, when she pegged "New York" as the song she wrote that she wished she'd written, it was completely the stuff chef's kiss emojis are made for. Everyone from Katy Perry to Young Thug to Diana Ross is on the schedule, and there will also be a tribute to Aretha Franklin. As is the case with most awards shows, the Grammy Awards are mixing the envelopes opening with a ton of performances. Additionally, she performed a bit of "Killing Me Softly" to honor Roberta Flack, who celebrated her 81st birthday one Sunday (the song was, of course, later famously covered by Lauryn Hill and The Fugees). Producer Boi-1da and Americana singer Brandi Carlile are behind them with six apiece. It didn't hurt that she'd already had three Grammys in hand at the time, either.
