Chance the Rapper coming to Darien Lake

Chance the Rapper coming to Darien Lake

When he is not schmoozing with his musical peers or modelling for H&M, Chance is a dedicated family man to his girlfriend Kirsten and their one-year-old daughter Kensli, whom they welcomed in September 2015. David Bowie posthumously grabbed five, his first wins since 1985. Gushing over his pride and joy, the rapper once wrote on Instagram: "This is the girl who reintroduced me to God". More, more, more! Given that Chance the Rapper is also nominated for Best New Artist tonight, we won't be surprised is that isn't the only text congratulations Chance receives tonight from the Canadian musician.

Her rival in the top three categories, R&B queen Beyoncé, flaunted her pregnant belly in a sheer, sparkling gold gown and a halo-like headdress as she performed an ode to motherhood.

Through this performance and through his multiple acceptance speeches throughout the night, Chance The Rapper shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the thousands upon thousands of people watching the ceremony.

"Glory be to God".

Watch footage of Chance The Rapper performing at last night's Grammys below. Featured on "Ultralight Beam", Chance explodes onto the scene with unique flow and engaging lyrics. However, there'll be no grand homecoming show in Chicago, much to the disappointment of his legions of loyal fans. Yet he's pals with former President Obama and single-handedly forced the Grammys to change the rules to allow free streaming-only releases to be considered for awards. The song's live performance on shows like The Ellen DeGeneres Show sets it apart from the usual, and Chance displays a humility that's genuine.

Kendrick Lamar has been the golden child of the Grammys since his debut album Good Kid, Maad City dropped in 2012. S***, this is insane. Thank God for this. Damn, I'm shaking, this is insane. Thank you everybody for supporting me...

After I made my second mixtape and gave it away online, my plan was to sign with a label and figure out my music from there.

It won't cost you a thing, and that's just how Chance wants it. Though the "Hotline Bling" rapper took home awards of his own, it's a nice gesture between artists to congratulate in an industry where competition is constantly pushed.

He has pleaded for an end to Chicago's gun violence epidemic, waging a campaign similar to an album promotion that was credited with helping make May 23 a day without deadly shootings in the Midwestern metropolis.

With the Chicago rapper continuing to trend on social media well into Monday, with fans sounding off left and right to discuss the 23-year-old's history-making evening, it's wonderful he's even making time to update his own Instagram account.
