So, About Common’s Grammys Date…
At Sunday night’s Grammy Awards, Common, who performed his Oscar-winning track “Glory,” brought along a very special lady: his daughter, Omoye Assata Lynn.
The daddy-daughter duo was photographed heading into the Staples Center on Sunday just before the annual awards show began. Omoye looked absolutely gorgeous wearing a white sleeveless dress and black sandals. Her beautiful tresses were pulled back into a very neat ponytail. It’s absolutely true when they say less is more because the simple, yet chic, look definitely worked for this 17-year-old stunner.
It seems fitting that the rapper would bring Omoye to the awards ceremony with him, as she was actually in the studio with him when “Glory” was composed.
“It’s been one of the most exciting moments for me in creating a song ever, just because of what it’s for and who it’s for,” he told Billboard back in December. “When I was writing this song, my daughter was in the studio, and she was enjoying it — she’s 17. And when I finished the song, I played it for my mother and she was like, ‘That song made me want to cry.’ She asked me to send it to her, and… my mother doesn’t do that too much.”
Omoye has blossomed into such a beautiful young lady.
