American R&B sensation Khalid has paid tribute to late artists Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle during an emotional Coachella performance of his 2017 track 'Angels'.

Miller passed last year aged 26, while Nipsey Hussle was shot outside his Los Angeles store last month and passed away aged 33.

Angels featured on Khalid's 2017 debut album American Teen. The 21-year-old recently released his sophomore album Free Spirit and announced he will return to New Zealand for one show in November.

Alongside the heartwarming tribute, Khalid's Coachella set featured cameos from Billie Eilish, Marshmello and Normani Hamilton.
