President Obama had a pre-filmed message to share during this year's Grammys, and he won the hearts and respect of viewers everywhere when he put the plight of rape and abuse victims front and center.

He started by stating that almost 1 in 5 women in the U.S. have experienced rape or attempted rape, and that at least 1 in 4 have experienced domestic violence.


"Artists have a unique power to change minds and attitudes, and get us thinking and talking about what matters," Obama said. "And all of us, in our own lives, have the power to set an example. Join our campaign to stop this violence."

Lady Antebellum announced it had changed its name to Lady A on June 11 as part of its commitment to "examining our individual and collective impact and marking the necessary changes to practice antiracism."

Antebellum refers to an era in the American south before the civil war when black people were held as slaves.
