Bruno Mars, Anderson Paak, Lionel Richie, Brandi Carlile, Chris Martin and Brittany Howard are honoring musicians who passed away this year at the 2021 Grammys.

Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, who performed earlier in the night as the duo Silk Sonic, honored Little Richard who died last May at age 87. The pair covered his hits “Long Tall Sally” and “Good Golly Miss Molly”.

Lionel Richie then gave a somber performance of his close friend Kenny Rogers‘ song “Lady”, which Lionel wrote, and “The Gambler”. The country music legend passed away in March at the age of 81.

Brandi Carlile followed with a rendition of John Prine‘s “I Remember Everything.” John died from complications related to COVID-19 in April at the age of 73. She ended her performance with, “We all thank you, John. For everything.”

Brittany Howard and Chris Martin finished the segment with a cover of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” as pictures of Bunny Wailer, Hal Willner, and Jerry Jeff Walker played behind them.

The montage also included Eddie Van Halen, Pop Smoke, Sophie, Charley Pride, Ennio Morricone, among many others.

Here are all the winners from the 2021 Grammys.
