Prince to be honored with star-studded Grammy salute

The Grammys has previously aired salutes to the likes of The Beatles, Aretha Franklin, Sir Elton John and the Bee Gees in the past.

Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich has revealed that the tribute came around after The Time teamed up with Bruno Mars for a tribute to the “Kiss” singer at the 2017 Grammys.

Fans can expect all the hits and some rare gems as well.

Ehrlich said: “There are times when we will try and suggest to an artist that their choice might not be the best choice, but ultimately we will go with what their instincts are.”

Some of the artists have already sent over ideas and rough tracks for their own interpretations of Prince’s songs.

He added to Rolling Stone: “I’m really happy because everyone I’ve heard, there’s a little bit of Prince — sometimes there’s a lot more Prince there.”

Prince was one of the bestselling artists ever, selling more than 100 million records worldwide.

He won eight Grammy Awards, six American Music Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award for the 1984 film Purple Rain.
