Chris Stapleton, Gary Clark Jr., & Bonnie Raitt Have The Blues Performing A Tribute To Legend B.B. King At The 2016 Grammy Awards!

Filed under: Music MinutePerezTVGrammys

Now THIS is music with some feeling!

After being introduced beautifully by the legendary Bonnie Raitt, the Grammys welcomed Gary Clark, Jr. and Chris Stapleton to perform a medley of blues music to honor the late, great B.B. King.

Of COURSE it was amazing — did you expect anything less from Clark and Stapleton?! — who were later joined by Raitt herself on stage to add another dimension to The Thrill Is Gone!

It'll never be King himself, of course, but when it comes to honoring his memory, these three did a pretty damn good job!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!!!

What'd U think of the performance?!

Saying goodbye is never easy, and 2015 has been no exception thus far.

From the anchor's desk at ESPN, to some of the pioneers of television and film, to music and sports legends and those gone far, far too soon, we lost a lot of celebrities this year.

As 2015 wraps up, we thought we'd take some time to say a proper goodbye to the stars who were taken from us far too early.

Take a moment with us…

The memorial services will give his other daughters, Patty King and Karen Williams, the chance to say goodbye, since they sadly didn't have that opportunity before he passed.

Information about the singer's funeral and burial service haven't been released yet, but the executive director of the B.B. King Museum, Dion Brown, says they will be held in Indianola, Mississippi the week after his memorial.

Our hearts go out to the friends and family of the legendary musician.

President Obama Sings The Blues!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikBarack Obama

The POTUS has busted out his singing chops again!

President Obama first displayed his skillz while singing a few Al Green lyrics a few weeks back. Now, he's swtiched to the blues! (Though we don't know why - he's got the upcoming election in the bag!)

With legends like B.B. King, Mick Jagger and Booker T. Jones beckoning him to sing again, Obama relents and belts out a few lines of Sweet Home Chicago in the new PBS's special, In Performance at the White House: Red, White and Blues.

The special will honor the art of blues music and its formation from the South to its surge in Chicago. And now it's reached Washington!!

Check out the POTUS's singing skillz in the video above!

Do U prefer the Prez's version of Sweet Home Chicago or Let's Stay Together?
