Before Sunday, Bowie only won one Grammy in his career — in the 1980s for a music video. Adele and Mars worked overtime onstage, each performing twice. Adele kicked off the show with “Hello” and Mars and his groovy band gave a memorable performance of “That’s What I Like” — as Jennifer Lopez, Faith Hill, Rihanna and even some of the men in the audience watched closely, looking impressed. Chance the Rapper won the first award in the live telecast for best new artist. He also won best rap album — the first streaming-only album to do so — and bested Drake and Kanye West.

Oakland resident Chris Oakes, a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, calls Gould “an amazing leader” with “an ability to speak with ferocity.”. “I’ve traveled with her where she has made various speeches and done talks, and the part that never fails to surprise me is the consistency of which she spits pure fire wherever she speaks,” Oakes said. “She speaks in such a way that is hard to ignore and hard to shy away from. Her voice can be soft at times, yet her tone and impact is hard as a rock.”.
