The tribute, which will feature a number of artists including John Legend, Chris Martin and Alicia Keys, will take place on Jan. 28 — two days after the 62nd annual Grammy Awards. The event will air on CBS later in 2020, the Recording Academy announced Thursday.
Prince’s longtime collaborators, including Sheila E. and his 1980s band The Revolution, are also slated to perform at the event, for which Sheila E. will serve as co-musical director.
She tweeted on Thursday that she is “honored to be performing” at the special celebrating the late music legend, who died in 2016 at age 57.
“We’ve put together some AMAZING talent that you won’t want to miss,” she wrote. “This is so special to me”
