The two-hour special, which will broadcast on February 10 on CBS, will feature artists singing covers of Wonder's biggest hits
Stevie Wonder is an icon. His career has spanned almost 50 years, garnering the adoration of old and young fans alike. And on February 10, the Grammys will salute the legendary performer.
Variety reports that CBS will air a Grammy special titled “Stevie Wonder: Songs In The Key Of Life – An All-Star Grammy Salute,” featuring both the 25-time Grammy winner and other musical artists singing the icon’s biggest hits from his 1976 Songs in the Key of Life.
“We are thrilled to pay tribute to this legendary man and musician,” said Jack Sussman, CBS’s executive vice-president of specials, music, and live events. “His influence is present in so much of today’s greatest music. This salute will give everyone he’s inspired a chance to show our esteem.”
The two-hour special will air on February 16, eight days after the Grammy Awards. This is the second annual televised special, following last year’s 50th anniversary tribute to The Beatles.
The show’s musical lineup hasn’t been released yet, but it is sure to be hot.
