Gay Marriage On Grammy Awards


On the Grammy Awards last night Queen Latifah married 33 couples of all ages, races & sexual orientations during a performance of Macklemore, Ryan Lewis & Mary Lambert's marriage equality anthem "Same Love." As the song ended Latifah re-emerged from behind an arch stating, “When we say music has the power to bring people together at the Grammys, we mean it. This song is a love song not for some of us, but for all of us." Then Latifah who was deputized by Los Angeles County to perform the legal weddings recently entered the stage adding, "We are gathered here to celebrate love & harmony in every key, in every color.” She then asked the couples to exchange rings "to signal their commitment to one another & to a life shared together with the music of love." It was very emotional to watch as Latifah took a moment herself to compose before pronouncing them all married couples. At that point Madonna emerged, dressed in white, to sing her classic song "Open Your Heart." A gospel choir, the other performers onstage, the couples & the audience joined in. Then the couples exited as the audience stood cheering with joy & many in the audience, including celebrities like Keith Urban, wiped away tears. Of course we all wonder when Queen Latifah will formally come out...:)
