Sometimes the smallest gesture from someone in a time a grief is enough to remind one that life can be filled with more moments of joy than not. Nas Bockarie became familiar with that notion when his favorite artist Stormzy performed his song “Blinded By Your Grace” at his father’s funeral on Thursday (December 21).
The story began last week when Nas tweeted Stormzy to inform him that his dad had passed away the day of his graduation and asking if he’d be able to perform their favorite song at the funeral.
Amazingly enough, Stormzy tweeted the grieving teenager back asking for a DM.
Sure enough Stormzy showed up at the memorial and gave what we can only imagine was an emotionally moving rendition of “Blinded By Your Grace.”
This isn’t the first time that Stormzy has gone out of his way to come through in the clutch for someone as he also helped a complete stranger pay her way through college earlier this year.
Much love and respect to Stormzy for being the kind of person that you only read about in comic books and old ass scriptures.
