With the loss of music legend Prince this past April, fans and peers of the ‘Purple Rain’ singer have come forward to show respect and tributes for the late icon. And with the BET Awards a mere matter of weeks away, attention has turned to how the show will honor the star.

Taking place on Sunday June 26th at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theatre, the spectacle will see Janelle Monae, D’Angelo, Sheila E. and The Roots salute the Purple one.
Additional names are set to be announced shortly.
