John Legend and Cynthia Erivo delivered a moving cover of the Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows” for the In Memoriam segment of Sunday night’s Grammy Awards, and now it’s available as a downloadable single.
Right after the live performance on Sunday, Legend tweeted that a studio version of the track was available. During the ceremony, he and Erivo performed the iconic Beach Boys song as a free-flowing duet featuring strings from yMusic.
Erivo and the cast of The Color Purple took home the award for Best Musical Theater Album on Sunday. The show also won Best Revival of a Musical at the 2016 Tony Awards, and Erivo received a statue for her performance. Legend has won 10 Grammy awards. This year, he lent his pipes to a role in the hit musical film La La Land, for which he’s also an executive producer.
