Quavo is set to take the stage during the 65th annual Grammy Awards in honor of Takeoff. The performance is part of the In Memoriam segment paying tribute to those from the creative community who have died within the past year.
The Only Built For Infinity Links rapper will be accompanied by the gospel music group Maverick City Music to perform “Without You” as they remember the life and legacy of Takeoff. Both Quavo and Offset, who formed the Migos trio with Takeoff, have shared public tributes mourning their bandmate following his death.
Takeoff, née Kirsnik Khari Ball was shot and killed in Houston on Nov. 1, 2022. In December 2022, Patrick Xavier Clark, 33, was arrested as a suspect in the murder. Another man, 22-year-old Cameron Joshua, was reportedly also at the scene of the crime and arrested the prior month for unlawful possession of a weapon.
On Jan. 4, 2023, Clark was released on a $1 million bond, negotiating down from $2 million. He must comply with a GPS ankle monitor until he is due to appear in court in March 2023.
Additionally, the In Memoriam lineup includes Kacey Musgraves performing “Coal Miner’s Daughter” in a tribute to Loretta Lynn, and Sheryl Crow, Mick Fleetwood, and Bonnie Raitt paying tribute to Christine McVie with “Songbird.”
Also performing during music’s biggest night are Mary J. Blige, Lizzo, Steve Lacy, Bad Bunny, Questlove, and more.
