Faith Evans and P Diddy Reunite to Sing Grammy Award-Winning Hit at House of Blues (VIDEO)
It’s been almost 16 years since R&B Divas Atlanta star Faith Evans and music mogul Sean “P. Diddy” Combs won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance By a Duo or Group for their collaborative hit, “I’ll Be Missing You.” Now that the Grammys are right around the corner (January 26 to be exact), it’s pretty great to see these two reunite for a performance of the symbolic tune!
While at the House of Blues in Los Angeles this past Wednesday, Diddy and Faith (sans R&B group 112) came together to sing the 1998 hit, which was a tribute to slain rapper the Notorious B.I.G., who was gunned down March 9, 1997 in L.A. Biggie was not only Faith’s estranged husband, but was also her labelmate (along with Diddy, who went by Puff Daddy at the time) and Bad Boy Records’ lead rap artist.
The song, which samples The Police’s 1983 hit “I’ll Be Watching You,” went on to be a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and is one of the best-selling singles of all time.
After the performance, both Diddy and Faith took to Instagram and Twitter respectively to gush about the night.
“Thanks to my bro @iamdiddy for coming out to rock the stage w/me & @1500orNOTHIN 2nite!” Faith tweeted. And Diddy Instagrammed how proud he was of Faith, who has garnered a 2014 Grammy nomination for her collaborative album, R&B Divas.
All of the tears.
