Here are a few of my othervFAVORITE moments from the 2018 Grammys!

โœจโญ๏ธ โœจ There was a spirited tribute for superstar โญ๏ธDolly Parton by Kacey Musgraves, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Maren Morris and Little Big Town. The energy was electric โšก๏ธ when Dolly… and her God daughter Miley… sang “Jolene !!!” It was magical!

A Well deserved honor for one of the top ladies of country/ pop music… Dolly is one of the most well respected…and liked stars in the business!

โœจโญ๏ธ โœจChloe X Halle Pay Homage to Donny Hathaway

I love the way the Chloe & Halle re-arrange songs!

They took the ball… ๐Ÿˆ and scored BIG singing the National Anthem for the Super Bowl… while at the Grammys… the reworked the classic soul favorite “Where is the love” with class, elegance and grace!

โœจโญ๏ธโœจ A Special Salute to MOTOWN celebrating…60th Anniversary!

J-lo participated… and dedicated her performance to her mother…saying they would dance around to a lot of Motown hits… back in the day.

Jennifer Lopez was singing & dancing to Motown hits like “Dancing in the Street” and “Mr. Postman.” She was joined by Smokey Robinson, Alicia Keys and Ne-Yo.

Motown legendary singer Smokey Robinson…:gave shouts out to Stevie Wonder, and Diana Ross in his own tribute.

Motown Records was founded by Berry Gordy in 1959. The Detroit-based record label had a star studded roster… with singers including Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, The Supremes, Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye.

This record giant… Hitsville USA… has always be LOVED & GREATLY respected by me for years!

I was thrilled learning about how the stars were groomed in that Detroit home… and taught Choreography.. and how to WORK the stage! Those singers had TRUE STYLE โ€ผ๏ธ

One of the BEST gifts I ever received…. was a table-top book… featuring priceless MOTOWN stories…. and LOTS of FANTASTIC pictures!!!!!

My MOTOWN Book… and ALL my Books ๐Ÿ“š about the “Supremes” are my #MostTreasuredKeepSakes
