Last night, the 2020 BET Awards remembered late music legend Little Richard with a performance by comedian-musician Wayne Brady.
Recall that Little Richard died at age 87 on May 9 of bone cancer. And on Sunday, Brady did his best to emulate the legend; dressed in a shiny gold suit, he gave an energetic performance with a medley that included some of the “architect of rock ‘n’ roll’s” greatest hits.
Brady played Little Richard on American Soul, a BET drama that told the story of the making of Soul Train.
Watch the performance below.
