As mentioned in my previous note, I watched the Grammy’s, almost in its entirety, for the first time in a LONG time. Before I talk about MusiCares, I’d like to share my Top 5 moments…
5. Whitney Houston on stage looking dazzling, albeit drunk
4. Coldplay‘s performance (Chris Martin makes me want to fly when I watch him!)
2. M.I.A. performing during “Swagger Like Us.” I would’ve taken the chance too…Love her!
1. Jennifer Hudson. Thinking about her strength, poise, and beauty is an overwhelming feeling!
So, there you have it!
Ms. Hudson was one of the performers tapped to honor Neil Diamond in a program to benefit the Grammy’s charitable program, MusiCares. The President of the Recording Academy talked about the MusiCares program last night. MusiCares provides support for addiction recovery and flood and natural disaster organizations, along with arts programs in public schools.
In addition to last Friday’s concert and dinner, there will be a charity auction of about 100 items from top recording artists, along with Grammy memorabilia autographed by performers either backstage or during rehearsals. To take a look at the items, head on over to www.ebay.com/grammy.
So, your turn, what was your favorite Grammy moment, and what was your worst Grammy moment?
