Back in August the Queen of soul, Aretha Franklin, passed aged 76 while battling pancreatic cancer.
A tribute concert called Aretha! A Grammy Celebration for the Queen of Soul will take place in January 2019, hosted by Tyler Perry.
Memphis-born Franklin accumulated 18 Grammy Awards across her multiple-decade long career, and in 1987 became the first female artist to be introduced into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She also performed at former-President Barack Obama's inauguration.
Former Aretha Franklin collaborator, and record executive Clive Davis said of the event, “Aretha was more than the Queen of Soul; she was a national treasure. This unique concert—featuring many of today’s greatest artists—will celebrate Aretha in a spectacular manner befitting her once-in-a-lifetime talent.”
