The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards are this weekend, and while we’re going to see performances from Miranda Lambert, Brandi Carlile and more, the Grammys are giving us even more music in the form of a follow up television special.
Hosted by Common, the two-hour special will feature:
“Songs that have seen us through the darkest hours and greatest triumphs. Artists across genres will highlight the stories behind, and deliver personal interpretations of, the powerful music that inspired social justice and equality.
Also, presenters from the worlds of entertainment, art and activism will look back at some of the most iconic Grammy performances and moments in history.”
The special will also feature performances from Yolanda Adams, Leon Bridges, D Smoke, Andra Day, Sheila E., Cynthia Erivo, Emily, Emilio, and Gloria Estefan, John Fogerty, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Terrace Martin, Brad Paisley, and Billy Porter.
“A Grammy Salute To The Sounds Of Change” will broadcast on Wednesday, March 17th, three days after the Grammy ceremony.
