Loved how the Grammys closed this year as Beyonce, followed by Common & John Legend took to the stages of stages to spread awareness and uplift mankind. Beyonce performed, not one of her hits, but “Take My Hand, Precious Lord” gospel style with her own #HandsUpDontShoot moment up above.
It was the perfect prelude to Common & John Legend’s Oscar-nominated “Glory”, which was accompanied by a full orchestra and choir. Man, that orchestra really added some more power to it. I also appreciated the subtle mannerisms of Common when he stood without touching the mic for the first verse and then became more animated for the second verse that looks ahead. Perfect. Everything about everything here was perfect, in fact.
