Following on from her first-class performance of golden gospel number “Take My Hand, Precious Lord” at the 57th annual Grammy Awards last night, Beyoncé releases an insightful behind-the-scenes mini-documentary portraying the importance and reasoning behind the rendition, and why she chose to sing with an all-male choir – who also speak on the significance of the performance during a period of time that sees the world mourn the loss of Eric Garner, a rise in awareness of police brutality, and the ongoing situation in Ferguson. “I wanted to find real men that have lived, have struggled, cried and have a light and a spirit about them,” Beyoncé said. “I felt like this is an opportunity to show the strength and vulnerability in black men. My grandparents marched with Dr. King, and my father was part of the first generation of black men that attended an all-white school,” she revealed. “My father has grown up with a lot of trauma from those experiences. I feel like now I can sing for his pain, I can sing for my grandparents’ pain. I can sing for some of the families that have lost their sons.” Watch the video above and share with us your thoughts.
