Ellie Goulding’s Grammy performance with Andra Day on Feb. 15 was one we will never never forget! The duet between these two talented artists will have you mesmerized.
Andra Day, 31, is definitely an artist to watch out for! Her performance with Ellie Goulding, 29, at the 2016 Grammys left an imprint on the ears and eyes of every one watching. The two did an amazing mashup of “Love Me Like You Do,” and “Rise Up” that had us cheering from our couch!
Andra began the performance with her song “Rise Up” and immediately had the audience hypnotized with her powerful voice. She wore a stunning long white fur coat with a hip jumpsuit. Andra then introduced Ellie to the stage, who came out in a glamorous sequined short black dress and began singing her hit Fifty Shades of Grey song “Love Me Like You Do.” Andra then joined in and they both went back and forth singing. It was truly a beautiful mash-up! Their voices meshed perfectly together.
Andra is also nominated tonight for Best R&B Album and Best R&B Performance for her single “Rise Up.” You might be asking how Andra and Ellie came together for this duet. “So [Grammy producer] Ken Ehrlich thought our songs would compliment each other really well,” said Andra to Glamour mag. “We actually shared a stage at Apple Music Festival in London too. She’s great. I really like her and her energy.” This unlikely duo sure made magic on that stage tonight!
Andra has been no stranger to the music scene! She has worked with the legendary Stevie Wonder. Afterall, he was the one who actually discovered her! Andra also gave a show-stopping performance with Nick Jonas last Nov. at the “Shining A Light” concert. With those few performances on her belt, Andra is still just getting her career started! If you loved her Grammy performance and you haven’t listened to her debut album Cheers To The Fall yet, do it now! You will be blown away.
