Watch: 33 Gay And Straight Couples Marry At Grammys As Macklemore And Madonna Sing

Queen Latifah married 33 same-sex and opposite-sex couples late Sunday night on live television during the 56th annual Grammy Awards on CBS. The mass wedding followed a performance of what has been called a “gay anthem,” Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Same Love,” with Mary Lambert. A special additional singer, Madonna, performed “Open Your Heart,” as Queen Latifah asked the couples to exchange rings.

“This song is a love song not for some of us, but for all of us,” Queen Latifah told the audience. “Strip away the fear, underneath it’s all the same love.”

“We are gathered here,” she continued, “to celebrate love and harmony, in every key and every color.”

She then pronounced them married couples.

The star-studded evening was the first time multiple same-sex couples have wed live on national television. Last month during the Rose Parade, a same-sex couple wed on a float, but the ceremony itself was not captured on air.

Watch, enjoy, share!

As a Christian ordained minister, I absolutely applaud and support this beautiful moment for the 33 couples. They are blessed to be a blessing to all who interact with them. Amen, and AMEN!
