Chance the Rapper returned to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday. In May, he performed "Blessings" from his Coloring Book project. This time, he brought along some friends to sing the song's reprise, which appears at the very end of the album.
The Chicago rapper was joined for his performance by Anthony Hamilton, D.R.A.M. Ty Dolla $ign, and Raury. All of them sang, and the latter two were pulling double duty, with Ty on bass and Raury on guitar.
As Chance walked out towards the audience, it became clear that there were far more than five people involved. They were joined by a keyboardist, a drummer, and a trumpet player—and, assembled among the audience, a white-robed gospel choir. After rising to a crescendo, the song ended like it started, with the five performers singing quietly in a line.
The epic performance comes hot on the heels of several big announcements for Chance. He will be one of the headliners this year at the White House's National Christmas Tree Lighting concert in December. He will also be featured in the new Kit Kat jingle.
Reaction to Chance's Tonight Show performance on social media was almost uniformly positive.
