Quavo will pay tribute to Takeoff at Music’s Biggest Night.
The Grammys announced that the Migos rapper will return to the stage to honor the life and legacy of his late nephew at the 65th annual awards on Sunday. He will perform his Takeoff tribute track “Without You,” which was released last month, alongside Grammy-winning worship group Maverick City Music as part of the In Memoriam segment.
The performance, which will honor music’s lost icons, will also include Kacey Musgraves performing “Coal Miner’s Daughter” in a tribute to Loretta Lynn, while Sheryl Crow, Mick Fleetwood, and Bonnie Raitt will honor Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie with “Songbird.”
During this year’s In Memoriam #GRAMMYs segment, @MavCityMusic will join @QuavoStuntin for “Without You” as they remember the life and legacy of Takeoff.
