The 65th Annual Grammy Awards was held in Crypto.com Arena, Los. Angeles, a few hours ago stunned the audience with mesmerizing performances along with the award distributions.
One of the key highlights of the show was the British American singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile’s electrifying version of her Broken Horses, with which she stole the stage with her stirring performance. The song was the second single of Carlile’s In These Silent Days album released in 2021, and already won two nominations for the Grammy’s title.
Carlile’s Wife Catherine Shepherd Also There To Cheer For Her
Through her remarkable performance on the Grammys, Carlile has proven the different dimensions in which her song could be performed other than its typical notes with which it was released back in 2021. To add to the depth of her performance, pairs of backing vocalists and the support of the high-octane band were quite notable.
Carlile’s performance was adorably introduced by her wife Catherine Shepherd and their two daughters Evangeline (8½) and Elijah (4½).
On the show Catherine appeared with the kids, one on either side, to proudly announce her wife’s performance coming up next.
Catherine remarked in the introduction that the millions who are watching the show currently have already fallen in love with Carlile four years ago, after witnessing her performance on the Grammys stage for the first time.
This she marked referring to Carlile’s live performance, The Joke, by which she could create a new fan circle. Catherine also added that she has been married to Carlile for more than 10 a decade and she is lucky enough to marry her since she was way ahead of the people she was addressing.
Addressing the crowd, Catherine also said that standing on the Grammys stage with their adorable daughters by her side, doing her part of introducing her spouse to the audience made her feel like the world. About Carlile, Catherine also humbly remarked that she is one of the greatest, most authentic artists and human beings on the planet.
Concluding her words and giving way to her wife to stir the stage, Catherine departed announcing here comes her wife and momma to her children, to rock the faces off with the Broken Horses from the Grammy-nominated In These Silent Days, Brandi Carlile. The kids also shouted their mom’s name through the microphone, right after Catherine’s words.
Before her performance at the Grammys, Brandi Carlile’s Broken Horses won the title of best rock performance and best rock song. The livewire entry was a fiery rendition that helped the show to kick off as soon as it began. Her performance was right next to the show’s opening performance of Bad Bunny and the monologue from host Trevor Noah.
