Kelly is heard asking Grant about the inspiration behind the song. Grant revealed it was her daughter Millie, who at two-years-old adorably joined her mother on the Grammy stage as she sung the song.

The young singer gushed that "Baby Baby" off of Grant's crossover album Heart In Motion is truly timeless and she was honored to be a part of the tribute.

"I loved the way that Dave Garcia crafted the new version of 'Baby Baby' together, using part of my original vocal and then pairing it with Tori's new vocal," Grant told PEOPLE. "Tori is such an incredible vocalist, one of the most effortless singers I have ever heard, and once she starts singing it is like a rocket engine has been strapped on to the song and she takes us all on a ride. I really think she knocked it out of the park."

"Baby Baby" took No. 1 on both the Top 40 and Billboard Hot 100 charts, while simultaneously hitting top 10 in ten countries. The album bearing the song (Heart In Motion) garnered four Grammy nominations and was RIAA certified 5X platinum. Grant initially unveiled the news of the remake of "Baby Baby" with fans via social media after sharing a personal series of throwback photos.

The 1991 hit song helped Grant crossover into mainstream music at the time. Before then she was strictly popular in the Christian music scene and has since returned to Christian music. Kelly, a mainstream phenomenon who reached No. 1 on iTunes with her Grammy nominated album, Unbreakable Smile, has shared her Christian faith during impromptu worship performances at her concerts.

A video of Kelly singing Hillsong United's "Oceans" during her 2015 New York concert surfaced and garnered the support of many in the Christian community. Watch the video HERE

Grant is currently on the "Live Life Together Tour" with Nichole Nordeman and Ellie Holcomb, presented by World Vision. For more information on Grant's new album and the revamp of "Baby Baby" visit
