Drake wins rap song Grammy; Michelle Obama appears

Drake surprised the music world Sunday when he emerged on the Grammy stage to accept the best rap song trophy but told the room of musicians that winning awards isn't necessary if you have real fans attending your concerts and singing your songs.
Drake, who rarely attends awards shows, won the honor for his massive hit "God's Plan."
"You've already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you're a hero in your hometown. Look, if there are people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain and the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don't need this right here. I promise you. You already won," he said at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
He tried to continue speaking but was cut off as the ceremony suddenly went to a commercial.
Rap has endured a longtime losing streak at the Grammys. The last time a rapper won album of the year was in 2004, with Outkast. Only a handful of rappers have won best new artist.
Drake has a chance to become the first rapper to win record of the year later in the show. Childish Gambino made history when his track "This is America" became the first rap-based song to win song of the year. Gambino has won three awards so far, including best music video and best rap/sung performance.
