Alicia Keys says Grammys will be about the ‘power of music’
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Grammys host Alicia Keys previewed the show by rolling out the red carpet and dancing while Trombone Shorty played funk music with bandmates.
Keys was all smiles Thursday as she joined Grammys CEO Neil Portnow, show producer Ken Ehrlich and others for a toast at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where the 61st Grammys will take place Sunday.
The piano-playing singer says the ceremony will be about the celebration and the power of music.
Keys has won 15 Grammys throughout her career and is hosting the show for the first time.
Women have a larger presence this year after being nearly muted at the 2018 show. Female voices represent the majority in two of the top categories.
