The gospel singers join Jennifer Hudson, Usher and Celine Dion for the one hour special.
The lineup for the Grammy’s Whitney Houston tribute, We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston, continues to grow. Gospel singer and dear friend CeCe Winans and Sunday’s Best judge Yolanda Adams have been added to the line-up, according to Examiner.com.
Slated to air November 16 on CBS, the prime time special will celebrate Houston’s life through several live performances and interviews. Previously announced performers include Jennifer Hudson, Usher and Celine Dion.
In addition, the one-hour special will air highlights from Houston’s past Grammy performances and her memorable rendition of the national anthem from Super Bowl XXV. One week prior to the tribute, a greatest hits album including two new tracks will be released. Shortly there after, a book titled Whitney: Tribute to An Icon will be released on November 27.
This isn’t the first time the Grammys have paid tribute to the legend. In August, they celebrated Houston’s life by opening an exhibition at the Grammy Museum. The exhibition includes a number of awards, her personal Bible, scrapbooks, posters and other memorabilia and will remain open through February 13, 2013.
