Elton John, Zac Brown Mumford & Sons Singer Tribute Levon Helm

02/12/2013
.
(Radio.com) The Grammys paid tribute to the late Band drummer/singer Levon Helm with a moving all-star tribute. A supergroup, featuring musical director/guitarist and 12-time GRAMMY winner T-Bone Burnett, took to the stage to the instantly recognizable chords of The Band's classic "The Weight."

Elton John, from behind the piano, said "We also remember the teachers and students of sandy hook elementary school, whose song ended way too soon." Zac Brown, who has certainly been influenced by the cross-pollination of country, folk and rock and roll that The Band spearheaded in the late '60s, sang the first verse.

Two artists who have worn their Band influence on their collective sleeves, Mumford & Sons and Alabama Shakes singer Brittany Howard took two verses.

Finally, Elton John who named one of his classic singles ("Levon") and his son (Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John) after Levon Helm finished the song. more on this story
