Asked why she has taken on the role of being a voice for equality in the music industry and beyond, she told Reuters: “It’s just that it comes down to a fundamental, simple question, do you feel it is your responsibility to uplift and support the women who inspire you? I do. And also do you feel it’s your responsibility to help uplift those who may come from more marginalized communities than you? I do.”
Among those attending the event were Grammy nominees H.E.R., Charlie XCX, Chloe X Halle, Brandi Carlile and Linda Perry.
The Grammys will be handed out at a lavish ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday (February 10).
