How do we join?
Alicia Keys hosted this year’s Grammy awards, and one of the first presenters she introduced to help her out? Well, it was the girl squad of actual dreams.
To the internet’s sheer delight, Michelle Obama stepped out hand in hand with Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Jennifer Lopez before the first few awards. The four joined Alicia to share positive messages of empowerment on stage.
While each of the women talked about music and empowerment, it was Obama’s speech that was met with most rapturous applause.
“Fom 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,” she proudly told those watching.
She 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, is that right ladies?”
Naturally, Twitter went absolutely crazy for the girl squad, asking what we are all thinking: HOW DO WE SIGN UP?!
All hail Alicia Keys for getting these awesome women together for this moment!
