With three GRAMMYs under his belt by the time he took the stage to perform at the 2017 GRAMMYs, Chance the Rapper had a lot to celebrate. And celebrate he did.
Chance delivered an emotional and powerful medley, beginning with “How Great” off his 2016 mixtape Coloring Book. Chance stood in front of a microphone and shared his empowering message with force. The veins practically burst from his forehead.
He was joined on stage by Kirk Franklin, Francis and the Lights, Tamela Mann and a gospel choir.
He switched gears when he ran over to a second stage where an orchestra and full gospel choir awaited him. They sang a few bars of “All We Got” before briefly referencing “No Problem” melodically and then returning to “All We Got” for a big finale.
Chance won Best Rap Performance for “No Problem,” Best New Artist, and Best Rap Album at the Grammys.
