NEW YORK (AP) — Youth and age crossed on the Grammy red carpet when SZA's grandmother and DJ Khaled's son arrived about the same time, one in a wheelchair and one in a stroller.

Both had a good reason to be there — they had roles in their family's Grammy-nominated albums.

DJ Khaled's 15-month-old Asahd was cradled by his dad and was dressed in a maroon crushed-velvet tuxedo just like his father, who called the boy, "My partner in crime, my best friend, my biggest blessing." Asahd appears on the cover of his dad's platinum-selling album, "Grateful."

Nearby, Norma Halmon, came from St. Louis, even though she's in her 90s and hates flying. "This is a huge deal for her," said SZA. Both her mother and grandmother narrate parts of the album "Ctrl."
