Yes Lawd! Anderson .Paak’s Gospel Version Of “Come Down” Is The Truth
Anderson .Paak made sure we went to church before the upcoming 59th annual Grammy Awards. Music’s Biggest Night is set to air this Sunday (Feb 12) with a host of A-List performers — including Beyonce, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, The Weeknd, Daft Punk, Adele, Bruno Mars and many others. Anderson is also set to rock the crowd with hip-hop legends, A Tribe Called Quest.
As a teaser to his set, the universally loved artist debuted a soulful new version of his 2016 “Come Down” single with a live gospel choir. The scene in the video features church service attendees of all backgrounds dancing and rejoicing — and a cameo from Anderson’s son, Soul, is included as well. This spanking new rendition is apart of the Grammy’s Believe in Music Campaign which hosts a string of artists showcasing the power of their art.
The video is a homage to Anderson’s childhood roots as church drummer. He is nominated twice this year for best new artist and best urban contemporary artist.
