What a fantastic idea!!!
The rapper and his producer Ryan Lewis will be performing the song Same Love, and 34 couples will get married during that time, including Lewis’ sister Laura!
It will include people of all races, ages, and sexualities, and guess who will be officiating the ceremonies?
Macklemore, Lewis, and Ken Ehrlich, the Grammys producer, came up with the idea a loonnnggggg time ago, and decided to have the couples wed on the sides of the stage, to be near the audience. Ehrlich said:
“It seemed like less of a ‘show’ than if I put them onstage. I don’t want them to feel as though they’re on parade.”
This is going to be SUCH a special performance! We can’t wait!!!
