Chloe and Halle Bailey, aged 20 and 18 respectively, gained the attention of Beyonce in 2013, after covering her song “Pretty Hurts” from her self-titled album. Since then, the two were signed to Bey’s Parkwood label, and haven’t stopped since. They can be found on the Freeform show grown-ish, which is now in its second season.
Late last year, the sisters added “Grammy nominees” to their resume. Thanks to the release of their album The Kids Are Alright last year, Chloe x Halle were nominated for two awards – Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album. They will find out if they’ve won on Feb. 10.
Gladys Knight commented on the backlash for her upcoming performance at the Super Bowl, stating “I pray that this National Anthem will bring us all together in a way never before witnessed and we can move forward and untangle these truths which mean so much to all of us.”
