During Anita Baker’s Las Vegas show at the Venetian Theater on Sunday night, the “Sweet Love” singer-songwriter gave Chance the Rapper a special shout-out for helping her take back ownership of her master recordings.

“Would you guys say hello to a friend of mine by way of the music industry, by way of helping me get a hold and ownership of my master records, Mister Chance The Rapper is right there,” Baker told the crowd who immediately cheered for Chance as he stood up and took a bow, thanking Baker for the acknowledgment.

The 64-year-old performer fought against her former label to regain control of her recordings until last year, when she finally got them back.

The “No Brainer” rapper cherished the sweet shout-out and re-shared a video of the heartfelt moment on Twitter, writing, “I saw one of THE greatest performances of my LIFETIME last night! Thank you so much @IAMANITABAKER for being an inspiration and an icon to so many of US.”

Baker responded, tweeting, “Had no idea you would be in our Midst. Such a nice Surprise. Brought Tears, to my eyes. Hope Ms. Essence enjoyed her Birthday.”
