IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: ANTHONY HAMILTON PERFORMED W/ CHANCE THE RAPPER ON JIMMY FALLON
Grammy award-winning singer Anthony Hamilton took to The Tonight Show stage, alongside Chance The Rapper, for a performance of Chance’s gospel-inspired single, “Blessings,” last night. Rappers Ty Dolla $ign, Raury and D.R.A.M. were also part of the performance, along with a Harlem-based teen choir. The song comes off of Chance’s critically acclaimed Coloring Book mixtape, which charted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200.
Hamilton’s appearance on Fallon is the latest of many televised performances the “Amen” singer has made in 2016. He and his popular background vocalists, The HamilTones, have also been guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Real and The Larry Wilmore Show. Hamilton even had the opportunity to perform for President Obama as part of the program at the Ray Charles tribute hosted at The White House back in February.
Hamilton’s Fallon performance is one the many national television appearances the What I’m Feelin singer has made in 2016. This past July, Anthony joined his group, The Hamiltones on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Anthony also performed his first single, “Amen” on The Real while promoting his new album, What I’m Feelin released via RCA this past spring. In 2016, Hamilton made an appearance on The Larry Wilmore Show and sang for President Obama at the Ray Charles Tribute at the White House. Hamilton recently completed a tour with RCA label mate, Fantasia, but he is about to hit the road again, this time with Lalah Hathaway and Eric Benet. Hamilton’s album, What I’m Feelin, is currently available for purchase.
