Chance the Rapper and Maxwell To Salute Prince At Clive Davis’ Grammy Party


(AllHipHop News) R&B star Maxwell will pay tribute to Prince at music mogul Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy Gala on Saturday night.

The singer will join Chance the Rapper onstage at the bash, which will take place at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.

Davis tells Billboard, “I will confirm that Maxwell will be performing. I had the challenge of trying to decide what would be the best way to honor Prince’s memory, and having seen a video of Maxwell doing ‘Nothing Compares 2 U,’ I was so taken with it that I reached out to ask him to perform, and he very graciously agreed.

“I can’t wait to have him take over the stage, and I think we will all feel honored that we’ve paid appropriate tribute to Prince.”

Maxwell is hoping his tribute at the gala will be the last time he has to honor Prince for a while, stating, “I did (Prince song) ‘Adore’ and I did ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ earlier in the tour because I’d always change the years (in the lyrics) to be the actual day and time he’s been gone, so it gets a little hard and a little bit depressing for me, because I knew him.”
