Fantasia, Yolanda Adams & Andra Day to Honor Aretha Franklin at Grammys

The Recording Academy has enlisted three powerful vocalists to pay tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, during the 61st Grammy Awards: Fantasia Barrino-Taylor, Andra Day and Yolanda Adams.

Together, they will honor Franklin, who died of pancreatic cancer on August 16 of last year. She was 76 years old.

The three singers will join a slew of other performers for the night, including Chloe X Halle, Travis Scott, Cardi B, Camila Cabello, Post Malone, Brandi Carlile, Janelle Monae, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Shawn Mendes, J Balvin, Dan + Shay, H.E.R., Young Thug and Arturo Sandoval. Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves and Maren Morris will perform in honor of country music icon Dolly Parton.

Diana Ross will be celebrating her birthday six weeks early with a special 75th Diamond Diana birthday performance on Grammy night. The Motown legend will actually turn 75 years old on March 26.
