Last month, CBS and the Recording Academy announced plans for a February special dedicated to Stevie Wonder and his catalog. The event, which is being billed as “Stevie Wonder: Songs In The Key of Life — An All-Star GRAMMY Salute,” now has a lineup.
On Feb. 16, performers including Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Ed Sheeran, Usher, Janelle Monáe, and Willie Nelson will converge on Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater to interpret the singer’s many classics. CBS says they’ll announce more artists as the date draws nearer.
“Stevie Wonder is a beloved icon whose golden songbook remains one of America’s and music’s greatest treasures,” said Recording Academy exec Neil Portnow in a statement. “A 25-time GRAMMY winner and Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, it’s only fitting that Music’s Biggest Night celebrates this legendary musical genius and pays tribute to his enduring music and legacy.”
