-Hey, Cyndi. How are you? You guys, Cyndi Lauper is here.
[ Cheers and applause ] -Oh, look at you. Hi.
Got you through. -You look amazing this evening.
-Oh, thank you, thank you. -I love the look. I love the whole look. I´m inspired, Cyndi, I´m inspired.
-Thank you, thank you. -And I know that you are performing tonight. You have an amazing performance lined up
with an all-star cast. Tell me about it.
-Oh, yeah, well, it´s a tribute to Ken — Ken Ehrlich. He — He started at CBS, producing “Fame.” And he wanted to do something that was eclectic, with all different kinds of artists and high school — high school kids. And it´s a great example
of how NARAS actually can help schools by putting music back into the schools. And you´re now gonna watch high school kids´ orchestra, high school chorus. You know, it´s — it´s very, um — it´s moving.
-It´s moving. -It´s an honor to be part of it. You know? -And being here tonight, Cyndi —
you´ve been on this red carpet many times, you´ve won Grammys, as well — what makes this show so special to you and some of the other artists who are here tonight? -Well, first of all, it´s celebrating the work. But, second of all,
just to have all the people come to the party, and that you get to see your peers and you get to see your colleagues and you get to see the music industry. We are a great export for our country. We export a lot of music all over the world. And when we get together here,
it´s kind of an amazing moment. You know?
And so it´s like a “take a breath” moment. “Here we are. Let´s celebrate the work.”
You know? -We´re celebrating everyone here tonight.
We celebrate you. Cyndi, thank you so much. -Thank you.
-So nice to see you. Thank you. Enjoy the night.
