“At first, I did think last year was a one-time thing, but when the opportunity came back around, there was no question about returning as host,” Keys said in a statement via Good Morning America. “Last year was such a powerful experience for me. Not only did I feel the love in the room, but I felt it from around the world and it confirmed the healing and unifying power of music.”
“From Best New Artist recipient to Grammy Award host, Alicia Keys has been a beacon of artistry within the music community for more than two decades,” Recording Academy President/CEO Deborah Dugan said in a statement. “Last year was a testament to her compelling creativity and we are thrilled that she will return to the Grammy stage as our host.”
Earlier this month, the 15-time Grammy winner released a remix featuring 21 Savage of her Miguel-assisted song, “Show Me Love.” Keys’ autobiography, More Myself, which was originally planned for release this month, is now slated for March.
