Donald Glover as Childish Gambino wins a Grammy Award and performs on the Grammys with his Lion King castmate

In the past year, Donald Glover has won Emmy Awards for his TV show (FX’s Atlanta) and now owns a Grammy Award for his musical moniker, Childish Gambino.

He won the Grammy Award for Best Traditional R&B Performance on Sunday night for “Redbone,” and also performed during the telecast his song, “Terrified,” with an extra vocal assist at the end from JD McCrary. McCrary plays Young Simba to Glover’s Simba in the live-action version of The Lion King filming this year for a release date in 2019.

Glover also stars this year in the Star Wars spin-off, Solo, as a young Lando.
