Prince will be the latest music legend honored with the upcoming special Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute To Prince, which is set for January 28th — two days after the Grammys — at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The show, which will air sometime in April, will feature Shelia E. with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis serving as the concert’s musical directors. The show will feature performances by the Revolution, Foo Fighters, the BanglesSusanna Hoffs, Beck, Common, H.E.R., Earth, Wind, & Fire, St. Vincent, Mavis Staples, Chris Martin, Gary Clark, Jr., and Juanes.

Sheila E. told Rolling Stone: “Musically, there’s so much to choose from. It’s almost unfair to do a two-hour tribute to him — we could do a full week. At the end of the day, it’s him bringing people together and having a good time.”
