Grammys: Michelle Obama Makes Surprise Appearance Alongside Alicia Keys, JLo & Lady Gaga

There was a surprise to start the 61st Grammy Awards ceremony with former First Lady Michelle Obama taking to the stage alongside host Alicia Keys.

The 55-year-old appeared alongside Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Jada Pinkett Smith, as the four of them discussed the importance of music in their lives.

Michelle is reportedly a good friend of Alicia and the singer had been to the White House on a couple occasions, while the Obamas were in power.


Alicia introduced the segment at the ceremony by saying: "Music is what we all love, music is what it’s all about.

"Everybody is out here shining and I’m so proud to bring us together to honor this moment because music is what we cry to, it’s what we march to, it’s what we rock to, it’s what we make love to.

"It’s our shared global language.”
Gaga and JLo shared their thoughts on this matter, followed by Jada but the biggest reaction was given to Michelle, who spoke out.

She said: "From 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.

Michelle 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?”

With the four of them on stage, Alicia referred to Beyonce's song when she playfully said: "Who run the world?"

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
