Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince, is scheduled to be held January 28 –-two days after the Grammys-– at the Los Angeles Convention Center and will be broadcast in April.
Sheila E., the former drummer for Prince will serve as the musical director for the night alongside some of Prince’s longest associates and friends Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
Also expected to perform is some of the biggest names from other genres of music include Beck, Common, Foo Fighters, H.E.R., Earth, Wind & Fire, St. Vincent, Mavis Staples, and many more.
“I was very honored to be able to do this for so many reasons, but to be able to help celebrate the life of a dear friend and be a part of this and be musical director is awesome,” Sheila E. told Rolling Stone.
This show is a unique opportunity for Sheila E. to experience and celebrate all of Prince’s music together. “Musically, there’s so much to choose from,” she says. “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.”
