Grammy Foundation celebrates Music & TV

12th annual preservation event bows in L.A.

The Grammy Foundation looked back at tunes on the tube Thursday at its 12th annual preservation event “Cue the Music: A Celebration of Music and Television” at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre.

Hosted by Shaun Robinson of “Access Hollywood,” the evening was co-produced by the Paley Center for Media. Archival clips surveyed the intersection of TV and music, from variety shows and sitcoms to music-dedicated programming spanning Leonard Bernstein and MTV. Footage from the foundation’s “Living Histories” included recollection by the late Pierre Cossette, longtime Grammys producer, and musician-inventor Les Paul.

Show featured performances by Grammy winners and 2010 nominees: Colbie Caillat and Jason Mraz (singing “It’s Not Unusual” and “I Got You Babe,” TV themes of Tom Jones and Sonny & Cher respectively), Jorge Moreno (“Babalu” from “I Love Lucy”), Solomon Burke (“Woke Up This Morning” from “The Sopranos”), Melanie Fiona (“Rainbow Connection” from “Sesame Street”) and the Fray (playing their own “How to Save a Life” and “You Found Me”).
