The 61st Annual Grammy Awards will air this Sunday, February 10 at 8pm EST. The competition is stiff across all categories so we’re definitely looking forward to see who will take home the gold. But what’s even more exciting is the Aretha Franklin tribute that will honor and celebrate Franklin’s life and career.
The Academy announced that Franklin’s tribute will be performed by Fantasia, Andra Day, and Yolanda Adams. Fantasia and Yolanda Adams actually honored the late Franklin by performing at her funeral. It was reported that Franklin had pre-approved the artists she wanted to honor her at her funeral so it is only right those same artists honor her for such an important tribute at the 61st Annual Grammy’s.
