‘At This Particular Point in History, Our Voices Are Needed More Than Ever’: Jennifer Lopez Presents at the Grammys

Jennifer Lopez presented the award for Best New Artist tonight at the Grammy Awards to Chance the Rapper, and at the beginning of her presentation, she made it at least somewhat political by reminding us that “At this particular moment in history, our voices are needed more than ever.”

She also quoted Toni Morisson, saying “This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, and no room for fear,” before she got on with the award.
