It became a night to remember as the beautiful Grammy host Alicia Keys kick-started the show by inviting Obama, 55, along with Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jennifer Lopez; to share their experience with music healing them, empowering them and changing their lives as women.

Michelle Obama wearing a shimmering, silver suit, wasn’t just a sight to behold but someone who was truly a pleasure to be heard, as always. “From the Motown records I wore out on the Southside to the ‘Who Run the World’ songs that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story,” Obama said, referring to the Chicago neighborhood where she grew up.
