John Legend and Cynthia Erivo Honor Those We've Lost at Grammys
John Legend and Cynthia Erivo delivered a special In Memoriam performance at the Grammy Awards on Sunday
Though last year’s Grammy Awards occurred weeks after David Bowie’s death, the 12 months since have seen many beloved performers die, including Prince, Merle Haggard, Leonard Cohen and George Michael.

Erivo was nominated and won for best musical theater album at this year’s Grammys for her role in The Color Purple, which also landed her the 2016 Tony Award for best actress in a musical. Earlier this week, news broke that she’d perform the lead role in the upcoming Harriet Tubman biopic.
Though Legend won last year’s best song written for visual media for Glory, the singer did not garner Grammy nominations this year. The La La Land star will be performing next at this year’s Oscars.
