Grammy 2017: Chance the Rapper wins again

25 is one of the best-selling pop albums in recent years and tracks such as lead single, Hello, have spent considerable time in the radio and streaming charts here. Then, he added the Best Rap Album Grammy to his trophy case later, to complete the trifecta. However, his performance medley of "How Great" and "All We Got" was the real highlight of the telecast for me.

The singer seemed to have an wonderful night, he mingled with everyone and was genuinely happy for his win. For one to be less commercial and more about the fans, Chance embodies the public and utilizes his platform to push political agenda. He was visibly emotional and touched. Damn, I'm shaking, this is insane.

His moment was very joyful with him spreading a positive energy.

The Grammys often fail to pick the most deserving music or musician from a list of nominees, but even this travesty only occurs when they manage to get some of the nominations right. He showed that pure talent and creativity will win out if the music is good.

American Airlines flight 1546 had just been cleared for takeoff minutes prior to Ford's plane passing above the aircraft. Ford crashed a World War II era plane on a golf course in Los Angeles in 2015 after suffering engine problems.

Of course, this isn't entirely the case: Chance's alliance with Kanye on the latter's Life of Pablo was a crucial step in Chance's transformation from mixtape darling to household name.

The artist sported a pretty special outfit. Chance can also count the likes of former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama as fans as well as Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda. The White Sox were among the first to congratulate the 23-year-old recording artist, who designed three limited-edition caps for the team last year and also threw out the first pitch at their home opener. He hugged Jay Z, took pictures with Katy Perry and talked with Rihanna.

Chance, last night, became the first artist to win a Grammy without selling physical copies of his music-or selling much of his music at all, for that matter.
