LOS ANGELES —
The Tuesday night award show wrapped with an all-star gospel performance in homage to Franklin featuring Gladys Knight, Ledisi, Donnie McClurkin, CeCe Winans and Mary Mary.
The Queen of Soul’s history with the AMAs – as a host, winner and performer – was acknowledged at the beginning of the segment, before a smiling Knight emerged to draw the notes out of “Amazing Grace” in the essence of Franklin.
Gospel mainstay Donnie McClurkin took the crowd to church with a rousing “Climb Higher Mountains” (also the recessional song at Franklin’s funeral) and was followed by Winans delivering a passionate “Mary Don’t You Weep,” Ledisi belting “How I Got Over” and gospel duo Mary Mary and a spirited backing chorus clapping and grooving through “Old Landmark.”
Earlier in the show, Taylor Swift commanded the winner’s circle with an armful of awards, including artist and tour of the year.
Atlanta rappers Migos won favorite duo or group – pop/rock, beating Imagine Dragons and Maroon 5.
