With only nominees allowed in the audience, 6 feet separation, and face mask requirements - the 63rd GRAMMYs was already slated to be a distinctly different from previous years, but did you know it would also be a lesson in manifesting?
With the performers for the program being announced on March 7, 2021, Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars noticed Silk Sonic, their newly formed band was omitted from the line-up. The duo had expected to perform their debut single 'Leave the Door Open' at this year's award ceremony, but with the show being 7 days away and the schedule locked in - it looked like a wash.
So what could they do? Well, I'll tell you what they did...they started a social media firestorm on Twitter with #LetSilkSonicThrive. What initially started with the duo humorously bickering about broken promises, facial features, and cultural appropriation, ended with a letter from Silk Sonic to the GRAMMYs, being retweeted over 14,000 times and on March 9th, a tweeted invitation from the Recording Academy for Silk Sonic to perform at the 63rd GRAMMYs.
Silk Sonic taught us a lesson in perseverance. It didn't matter how it looked, or that the deadline was so close, they kept speaking what they wanted to happen and it caught on and trended with fans across the globe. Their hope was fulfilled in 2 days because they didn't let go of the dream to perform at the 2021 GRAMMYs.
What manifested was a truly wonderful performance, with smooth vocals and Bruno's trademark lyrical humor with lines like "Shut your trap." Now their debut single 'Leave the Door Open' is steadily rising on the the Billboard Charts.
