Childish Gambino Performs “Terrified” With Singer JD McCrary at 2018 Grammy Awards
Childish Gambino delivers an epic performance. On Sunday night (Jan. 28), the multifaceted rapper showcased his vocals as he performed his Awaken, My Love! track, "Terrified," in front of a packed crowd at the 2018 Grammy Awards. Singer JD McCrary, who's set to play the role of young Simba in the Gambino-starring live action adaptation of Disney's The Lion King next year, joined him onstage.
Standing under the glow of a bluish light spotlight, Gambino showcased the smooth falsetto that permeated his Funkadelic-inspired album. McCrary left his mark, too, showing the precocious talent that helped him land on the Gambino track in the first place. It was a dope moment, to be sure.
What was equally dope was Gambino, who this past summer hinted at a retirement from the music world, was the Georgia-bred artist winning his first-ever Grammy Award. Earlier in the night, his hit single "Redbone" took home the trophy for Best Traditional R&B Performance. Salute to him.
