While he grieves for the sudden, tragic loss of his mother, Donda, Kanye West has had to cancel a number of previously made engagements, including a scheduled appearance at tonight’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. However, the rapper’s pal, Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am has stepped up to fill in the gap.

According to Entertainment Tonight, as a tribute to Donda, who passed away mysteriously soon after undergoing a cosmetic surgery procedure last weekend, Will.i.am will perform his hit “I Got It From My Mama” at tonight’s taping of the show, which will air on CBS on Dec. 4.
