Chance the Rapper brought a slice of the Windy City to the Staples Center when he performed “How Great” and “All We Got” at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night. He was flanked onstage by his cousin Nicole, the gospel musician Kirk Franklin, a horn section, and a massive choir — and wove in references to his songs “No Problem” and “Blessings.”

The performance was just one component of a banner night for the seven-time nominee, who won Best New Artist and Best Rap Album. And Chance’s moment in the spotlight capped a Grammys quest he began almost exactly a year ago: On “Ultralight Beam,” the opening track from Kanye West’s album The Life of Pablo, the Chicago MC rapped, “I met Kanye West, I’m never going to fail / He said let’s do a good ass job with Chance three / I hear you gotta sell it to snatch the Grammy.”

Chance’s rendition of “How Great” and “All We Got” also continued another personal saga of his: To play every song off his 2016 mixtape Coloring Book on television. He’s now more than halfway there.
