The Best Grammy Performance Wasn’t Beyonce’s
Watch Chance The Rapper take us all to church.
The best performance at last night’s Grammys wasn’t Bruno Mars’ Prince homage or even Beyoncé’s Last Supper recreation (Sorry, Bey)?—?it was a 23-year-old Chicagoan’s show-stopping gospel.
Chance the Rapper showed us exactly how he’d earned his seven Grammy nominations with a mashup of his hits “How Great” and “All We Got,” accompanied by gospel powerhouses Kirk Franklin and Tamela Mann. Staying true to his faith, The Grammy winner nodded to youth pastors across the globe and celebrated a part of black culture that rarely hits the mainstream.
