April 21 will bring with it the four-year anniversary of the untimely death of music royal Prince.
To commemorate the occasion, the Recording Academy assembled some of today’s top talents to ode the Purple One in a “must see” television concert experience.
After saluting music industry legends the Bee Gees, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, and more in the past with their annual ‘Grammy Salutes’ event, this year Prince has been named the show’s honoree.
Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince was filmed back in January after the 2020 Grammy Awards and boasted a stacked lineup that featured Beck, Gary Clark, Jr., Earth, Wind and Fire, Common, Miguel, Chris Martin, H.E.R., Juanes, St. Vincent and Mavis Staples.
Plenty of past Prince collaborators were involved as well, including Morris Day and the Time, the Revolution and Sheila E., who served as co-musical director with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.”
Hosted by actress- comedienne Maya Rudolph, the special also featured appearances from Naomi Campbell, FKA Twigs, and more.
