HONORING DAVID BOWIE

BRIT MUSICAL ICON

David Bowie’s death stunned all of those aware of his career.

He was a member of the British culture but he was a citizen of the world. As such, his work played a major role in the world’s music scene.

His loss is huge.

Even though, it was known that he was ill, the news traveled the world faster than the speed of light.

We ALL lost a master at his trade, an incredible musician and performer, a wonderful father and an unique human being.

It’s only fitting … this tribute.

The video is a bit long but it’s worth a watch.

Fare thee well, Starman!

~Emotional tribute to David Bowie~

Annie Lennox

“On the 10th of January this year, the world was stunned and shaken by the news that David Bowie had suddenly passed away. I suspect that everyone is still trying to process this sadly unexpected event. Even if they didn’t know him personally, many people must feel as if things will never be quite the same again. He had that special kind of significance.

“For me, it’s almost impossible to mention Bowie’s name in the past tense. Everything he represented as an artist was, and always will be, vital and incredibly present. As a cutting-edge artistic genius, he continues to live on through his music. David Bowie is deeply embedded in the heart of British culture, as a fixture within our collective inner psyche, influencing every decade from the moment he first appeared on the airwaves with ‘Space Oddity’ in 1969 right up to the present day.

“The Brits Icon Award is only presented to unparalleled artists whose writing, recording and performance set them apart as having made a lasting impact on the nation’s culture, recognizing the very highest level of British music achievement. To accept the award, I’d now like to invite David’s dear friend Gary Oldman to the stage.”

Gary Oldman

“We are all coming to terms with the magnitude of David’s passing. The Jones family lost a husband and a father. Those closest to David lost a dear friend and the world lost a man, an artist of transcendent talent. As Annie so gracefully said, David’s contribution, his influence on popular music – on culture itself – has no equal. He was the very definition, the living embodiment of that singular word, ‘icon’. I am so deeply touched and honored to be here tonight to accept this award for David and his family.

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

You can find Michelle here: http://mchelsmusings.wordpress.com/

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

ADELE

She kicked off the night on the red carpet, stunning in a flowing red gown by Giambattista Valli. It didn’t take long for the show to start and Adele to win the first award.

Upon hearing her name called, Adele kissed her boyfriend Simon Konecki and took center stage to accept the trophy from One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, marking the first time the hitmaker has won a Brit award since 2013.

Adele Publicly Supports Kesha

“Thank you so much,” she told the cheering audience. “To come back after so long away and be so warmly received is really lovely. Thank you so much.”

Adele added: “And to all the other girls that were nominated, thank you for letting me be in your company. You’re all incredible. You’re all amazing, and it’s a privilege to be alongside you.”

Adele’s show of support came after she thanked her “management and my record label for embracing the fact that I’m a woman and being encouraged by it.”

Making the victory even sweeter, she topped off the moment with a celebratory dance.

She went on to win the single award for “Hello.”

“I nearly fell over!” she said after making her way to the spotlight. “I was not expecting this one at all. Thank you so much again.”

Then she showed love for her fellow nominees, saying, “All those songs – I love all them songs.”

She also gave her thoughts on the show’s performances, including a showstopper from Justin Bieber, whom she smooched on the way to the stage:

“Everyone has been amazing so far  … I thought you were going to set us on fire, though, Justin.”

GLOBAL SUCCESS AWARD

But the most emotional point came when she scored the global success award. With a mix of tears and expletives, Adele expressed her feelings in an uncensored speech.

“Thank you. I can’t work out if I’m crying because of that video or because astronaut Tim Peake did it,” she said of a montage that played. “My kid is going to think I’m so cool. That was really amazing and I’m honestly … oh God, sorry … you’re probably getting f—ing bored of me anyway.”

(Her f-bomb later elicited an apology from the hosts on U.K. broadcasting network ITV.)

She continued: “I honestly can’t tell you – I said it earlier – but to come back … I got really lost for awhile; I didn’t know if I’d ever come back, but for you all to be so kind to me … I wanna thank my manager Jonathan Dickins and Rose Moon. You’re amazing. And I want to thank my boyfriend for supporting me.”

Then came her epic remark on her roots: “Not bad for a girl from Tottenham that don’t like flying!”

FOURTH AWARD

~~Published on Feb 24, 2016~~

In her fourth acceptance speech – this time, she won the Mastercard British album of the year for 25 – Adele made light of her language and tears.

“I’m really sorry about swearing earlier and I’m really sorry for the ugly cry face,” she quipped. “I think now would be the time to thank people like the fans. I don’t want to sound cheesy, but you’re so amazing. Thank you so much. Honestly, you’re incredible. You blow me away every time.”

Adele later thanked her boyfriend Konecki, with whom she shares son Angelo, 3.

“I also want to give a massive thank you – I’m going to embarrass you, I’m sorry – to my boyfriend,” she said. “I’m so lucky to have you love me the way you do. Really, really. And to support me. This album was really hard to make. It was. I think I was a nightmare at times.”

She added: “And thank you for our lovely son, who is the love of my life. This is all for you peanut, I love you.”
