Gary Clark Jr. and Jon Batiste joined forces at the 60th Grammy Awards to pay homage to Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients Chuck Berry and Fats Domino with a jaw-dropping performance.
Batiste opened with a wonderful rendition of Domino’s “Ain’t That A Shame,” before handing the mic off to Clark to perform a chilling cover of Berry’s classic “Mayellene.” Both songs were released in 1995.
Following the performance, Clark and Batiste presented the Best Pop Solo Performance, which was awarded to British singer Ed Sheeran (“Shape of You”).
Batiste is gearing up for his Solo in the Round Tour, which begins on February 27 at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City. Batiste will travel across North America with stops in Houston, Dallas, D.C. and Atlanta, before wrapping up in Nashville.
Clark also has tour dates lined up for mid-July.
