2023 Grammys: Why Sheryl Crow Says Honoring Late Christine McVie Is An Honor Itself
Feb 2023

At the 2023 Grammys, Sheryl Crow, Mick Fleetwood and Bonnie Raitt will take the stage to honor the late Christine McVie, who won a posthumous award.Sheryl Crow is sharing the sweet way she's horning the late Christine McVie on the 2023 Grammys stage.
The "Real Gone" singer is paying tribute to the Fleetwood Mac's singer and keyboardist--who passed away at age 79 in November--alongside Bonnie Raitt and Mick Fleetwood during the award show hosted by Trevor Noah Feb. 5 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
"For me to get to tribute Christine, because they've been--the band and Christine--so influential on me, but also to get to do it with Mick, it's so deep and meaningful to me," Sheryl exclusively told Bobby Bones during E! Live from the Red Carpet. "I feel like I'm getting the honor of getting to honor."
It's a sentiment Mick echoed.
"Having Sheryl and Bonnie singing this beautiful song, I think all of us collectively are here representing Christine," Mick told E!. "What she meant as a person in Fleetwood Mac and of course personally to me and the band members and a lot of other family members. Outside of that, I think it's a moment to accolade the wonder of a hugely talented, lovely unsuspecting lady known as Christine McVie."

"There is a lot of fuss, but we are really happy to be making a fuss of her," the 75-year-old continued. "It's double edged--it comes with a celebration and a quiet prayer that contains some sadness of loss. But having it be able to come to life with this lovely lady [Sheryl], and Bonnie, is a beautiful thing for me to see happen."
And ahead of music's biggest night, Christine won a posthumous Grammy for Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals with "Songbird (Orchestral Version)" by Vince Mendoza.
In November, the band confirmed the songwriter's death on Facebook, writing, "There are no words to describe our sadness."
"She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure," the group continued. "She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life."
"We were so lucky to have a life with her," the band added. "Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed."
