First Lady Michelle Obama was clearly in an ‘Empire State of Mind’ yesterday evening, as she helped introduce honoree Alicia Keys during the 2015 GRAMMYs on the Hill.
The 15-time GRAMMY-winner was joined by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Congressman Jerrold Nadler in accepting awards during Wednesday’s ceremony, which each year is dubbed “Washington’s most interesting mix of music and politics.”
GRAMMY nominee Hunter Hayes served as the event’s Master of Ceremonies, which counted a live piano solo among his many duties. Also performing at The Hamilton last night was a bevy of music talent, including Texas-based singer/songwriter Robert Earl Keen, GRAMMY-winning jazz and gospel saxophonist Kirk Whalum, and Brooklyn rockers American Authors.
