Levon Helm Tribute at the Grammys

Elton John, Mumford & Sons, Zac Brown, T-Bone Burnett, Mavis Staples, and Brittany Howard doing "The Weight" brought down the house in the most fitting tribute to an artist possible.

This soulful and full-bodied performance with an even fuller sound filled the entire ampitheater - which was evident even across the screen!

The best part of the performance? Bringing together these fantastic artists, talented in their own right, that may never have ever had the chance to perform together in any other capacity and putting them on a stage together. 

It was touching and electrifying.
