Somewhere between the bad hair,
was a good message aimed at social change. President Obama surprised Grammy viewers with a pre-recorded PSA promoting his administration’s It’s On Us campaign that calls for an end to domestic violence.
It’s on us – all of us – to create a culture where violence isn’t tolerated, where survivors are supported, and where all our young people – men and women – can go as far as their talents and their dreams will take them.
Obama urged the faces in the audience to lead the way though this face should’ve stayed home:
And while some blasted the Grammy’s for honoring the likes of one of the most notorious domestic abusers on the same evening that survivor and activist Brooke Axtell delivered a brief but powerful speech on this most important topic,
most saw it as the most important moment of the evening. This was a shining example of where one person was seen by twenty million but one message was shared by hundreds of millions through social media. There is real strength in those kinds of numbers and this is a common value that hopefully we can all get behind. #ItsOnUs
Couldn’t resist adding this newly released Obama clip. Enjoy this-sick-beat!
