Chloe and Halle Bailey, just 20 and 18 years old respectively, were born in Atlanta and caught the attention of Beyoncé in 2013 after posting a cover of her song “Pretty Hurts” on YouTube.

They were subsequently signed to her label Parkwood Entertainment and released their debut album “The Kids Are Alright” last year. Their vocal talent and contemporary R&B style earned them Grammy nominations for best new artist and best urban contemporary album for next month’s ceremony.

They also opened for Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s joint “On The Run II” tour last year, and star on the show “Grown-ish.”

They previously sang the national anthem at the NFL Draft in 2017.
