The Grammy nominated song is from Jon Batiste’s recent album, “ World Music Radio “.

Jon Batiste was on the Late Show to present a wild rendition of his song “ Worship », nominated for the Grammy Awards. The musician performed the song with a live band and backing singers who brought a joyful and festive atmosphere to the Late Show stage.

The song ” Worship » appears on Batiste’s seventh studio album, World Music Radio, released in August. This album follows that of 2021, We Are, which won several Grammys, including Album of the Year. This year, Batiste was once again nominated for several Grammys, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “ Worship » and that of the song of the year for “ Butterfly “.

Last month, Batiste released a stunning new ballad about enduring love, “ It Never Went Away », written for a new documentary, American Symphonyon Batiste and his partner, the artist Suleika Jaoaud.

The film, directed by Matthew Heineman, follows Batiste and Jaouad during a tumultuous year of their lives, as Batiste composes his first symphony and Jaouad undergoes treatment for lung cancer. “ It Never Went Away ,” which Batiste co-wrote with Semisonic frontman Dan Wilson (who has also collaborated with artists ranging from Adele to Taylor Swift), evokes these upheavals, but ultimately celebrates a strong, serene love that transcends all.
