Dressed in a metallic silver suit, she then started her speech again by saying, “All right you all, all right, we got a show to do. 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.”

“Whether we like country, or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves our dignity and sorrows, our hopes and joys,” the Becoming author continued. “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?”
Her surprise entry definitely left everyone speechless.
