Tyler Perry will host a tribute special for the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. It will be called Aretha! The concert will be filmed in January and broadcast on CBS at a later date.
Some of the artists confirmed for the tribute include Yolanda Adams, Shirley Caesar, Alessia Cara, Kelly Clarkson, Common, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Patti LaBelle, BeBe Winans, Brandi Carlile, Chloe X Halle, H.E.R., Janelle Monáe, and SZA.
The Recording Academy and Clive Davis are teaming up with CBS for the special. Hopefully, this won’t take the place of a Grammy Awards tribute. Who else would you like to see at this concert?
