Just last week, Chadwick’s wife, Taylor Simone Ledward, left viewers in awe after she performed an emotional rendition of Eddie Heywood‘s “I’ll Be Seeing You” during the televised Stand Up to Cancer special.
The event’s co-host Anthony Anderson introduced Taylor with a heartfelt tribute of his own.
“Many of us were devastated to learn of Chadwick Boseman’s tragic passing after he privately grappled with cancer for several years,” Anthony said, per Entertainment Weekly. “The world lost an incredible artist, and a true hero. But before he was a public figure, he was a person like you or me—a son, a brother, uncle, cousin, friend, colleague, husband.”
He continued, “Many of us are all too familiar with the fracture a dearly loved one’s passing leaves in the lives of those who love them. Here to perform a song about living with the reality of loss and finding a way forward is Chadwick’s wife, Simone.”
