Beyoncé, the artist who should've won Album of the Year, effectively glowed on the Grammys stage to close out the show tonight, performing "Take My Hand, Precious Lord," a gospel hymn that her mom Tina Knowles used to sing to her. (Mahalia Jackson and Aretha Franklin also both performed the song at two separate services for Dr. Martin Luther King's funeral in 1968.) I'm going to refrain from making any goddess references.
Beyoncé was dressed angelically and backed by a full choir. As previously reported, Beysus' performance preceded Common and John Legend's powerful rendition of their Oscar-nominated Selma song "Glory." So that's three beautiful people singing meaningful records to close out the Grammys. Goodnight.
