Just before the Billboard Music Awards ended, Imagine Dragons took the stage to slow things down and honor the late Ben E. King with a touching performance of ‘Stand By Me.’
Imagine Dragons are always amazing live, and the 2015 Billboard Music Awards were no exception. Not only did they take things down a notch by performing the classic balled, “Stand By Me,” but they also honored the late Ben E. King who sadly passed away just a few weeks earlier on April 30. So sweet.
Imagine Dragons’ Billboard Awards Performance: ‘Stand By Me’
With Ben E. King’s daughter and granddaughters in the audience, Imagine Dragons gave a beautiful performance of his iconic song, “Stand by Me.”
Lead singer Dan Reynolds sang the soulful tune as the band kept things simple with a more acoustic sound for the show. Even the lights on the stage were low, giving a real laid back ambiance. Ben E. King’s family were seen swaying along with the song and smiling, and even Taylor Swift was caught singing along in the audience!
The guy should be proud, because they definitely gave a beautiful tribute to an iconic music maker. Way to go, Imagine Dragons!
