It’s a safe bet you’re going to hear such anthems as “A Change Is Gonna Come” and “People Get Ready.”
If the three-and-a-half-hour Grammy Awards telecast set for Sunday isn’t enough for you, the Recording Academy will be back on CBS just three nights later with a two-hour TV special: A Grammy Salute to the Sounds of Change.
Common will host the special, which will “spotlight the iconic songs that inspired social change and left an everlasting imprint on history,” according to a Recording Academy statement. It’s a safe bet you’re going to hear such anthems as “A Change Is Gonna Come” and “People Get Ready.”
The show will include appearances by Yolanda Adams, Leon Bridges, Eric Church, D Smoke, Andra Day, Sheila E., Cynthia Erivo, John Fogerty, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Terrace Martin, Brad Paisley, Billy Porter, LeAnn Rimes, Chris Stapleton and Emily, Emilio and Gloria Estefan.
