Just a little over two months after McVie’s passing, Fleetwood paid tribute to her once more through a performance at the 2023 Grammy Awards. He enlisted the help of Sheryl Crow and Bonnie Raitt to deliver the tribute during the ceremony’s “In Memoriam” segment.
The trio performed Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 single “Songbird.” The track was solely written by McVie and she was the lead vocalist on its recording. Because of this, many fans and friends referred to her as “Songbird.”
Crow played piano while she, Raitt, and Fleetwood sang “Songbird” in tribute to McVie at the 2023 Grammys. Viewers were moved by the trio’s heartfelt performance, with some reactions on Twitter being:
“That was the best moment of the Grammys. I am so sorry to hear of her passing, beautiful woman…”
“…A beautiful tribute to the soulful songbird.”
“It was so awesome!! Glad I saw it live! Miss Christine.”
