Childish Gambino Pays Tribute to Late Father at Tour Stop

Childish Gambino showed love to his late father on the final stop of his This Is America tour.


He told the crowd, “I lost my father a couple weeks ago and I wanted to play him some of the new songs but he didn’t want to hear them because he was like, ‘I know they’ll be great.’ I’m not saying that to talk about music, I say that to talk about trust. That’s what love is. I hope you guys get to feel that kind of love.” Gambino went on to perform a couple of his unreleased tracks. Fan footage of the songs was posted on social media. He also said during the show that 2018 had been a tough year: ” I lost a lot of good people. I know it’s been a tough year for everybody, that’s what’s crazy. I wish I could change everything for everybody.”
