[Hip Hop News Now] The Grammy’s May Have Failed, But Pharrell Successfully Communicates That #BlackLivesMatter

Happy

Pharrell Williams has made people jump out of their seats in pure happiness over his “Happy” song and just when you thought we had heard enough of the track that has had legs since it’s first release in November of 2013, Pharrell switches things up and takes this track to a whole new level. At tonight’s 2015 Grammys Pharrell had a deeper message to communicate with his “Happy” track.

While once again getting people out of their seats as he sang those popular lyrics, Pharrell made a statement to those in attendance and also to those who were viewing from home that Black Lives Matter.

With his backup dancers donning all black with their hoodies up, the choreography paused for just a moment as all on stage stood with their hands up in support of #BlackLivesMatter #HandsUpDontShoot.

Pharrell’s subtle message was clearly seen, I just hope that it was understood.

The performer had a huge night, taking home three Grammy awards.

Before leaving the stage, Pharrell thanked God and stated, “At your service,” as he looked on to the heavens.
