JOHANNESBURG - The Grammy Awards saw American singer-songwriter Tracy Chapman holding back her tears as she received a standing ovation during a rare live performance of Fast Car with Luke Combs.
Despite coming from different eras and musical styles, Chapman returned to the Grammy Awards stage with Luke Combs, 35 years after winning a Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her hit Fast Car.
Donning black, Chapman began her Grammy performance by strumming the well-known first few lines on her guitar.
This is Chapman's first public performance in several years. Her return to the annual ceremony's stage is a historic occasion for the songstress.
Fast Car is no stranger to the esteemed awards show. In 1989, Chapman was nominated for the Record of the Year and Song of the Year categories.
She went on to bag the Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her popular song.
