Chance serenaded the Champ.
Chance The Rapper performed an emotional new song in tribute to late boxer Muhammad Ali at this year’s ESPY Awards.
The ‘Coloring Book’ rapper performed the moving tribute in front of a backdrop of powerful Mohammad Ali images.
“Ain’t no one prettier, ain’t no one wiser, ain’t no one better,” he sang in between quotes from Ali himself.
Muhammad Ali, often considered the greatest heavyweight boxer of all time, passed away on 3rd June, after being rushed to hospital with respiratory problems.
R&B singer Bryson Tiller, who is from Louisville, Kentucky – the same place as Ali, also delivered a tribute to the boxer during his set at this year’s Wireless Festival.
