Zelenskyy Addresses Grammys In Video Message

In a video address at the Grammy Awards, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy asked for help in relaying the tale of Ukraine’s invasion by Russia.

In a statement that was aired on Sunday, he compared the invasion to a deadly silence that threatens to extinguish the dreams and lives of the Ukrainian people, particularly children, in a statement that was broadcast on Sunday.

Instead of tuxedos, our musicians wear body armor.” They sing to the wounded in hospitals, even those who are unable to hear, “he explained. However, the music will eventually break through.

Prior to the ceremony, the Recording Academy and its partner, Global Citizen, promoted a social media campaign called “Stand Up For Ukraine” to generate money and support for the country’s humanitarian crisis.

“Play your music to fill the void.” Fill it out right now to help us share our story. Tell the truth about the conflict on social media, on television, and in every other manner you can, but not in silence. “And then there will be peace in all of our cities,” Zelenskyy said.

Following Zelenskyy’s message, John Legend performed “Free” with Ukrainian artists Siuzanna Iglidan and Mika Newton, as well as poet Lyuba Yakimchuk, with photos from the war shown behind them on screens.
