For the first time in seemingly months, all the attention on Rihanna focused on the music for a change. At last night’s Grammy Awards, the singer united with singers Bruno Mars and Ziggy Marley to celebrate the greatest reggae artist of all time – Bob Marley.
Also on hand were Sting and Damien Marley. In one of the most moving moments of the night, the singers serenaded the audience with one of Marley’s signature songs, ‘Could You Be Loved’.
Not a single person was in their seats during the performance. As the stage flashed Marley’s national colors of red, green, and yellow, Rihanna made a statement that whatever happens in her personal life, the music is first and foremost, the reason for her stardom.
It remains to be seen whether or not this performance will be included on any boxed sets or Grammy CDs, but if popular opinion holds out, expect something on iTunes within the week or month!
