The late Aretha Franklin’s roots run deep in Gospel music, which makes it fitting for Gospel singers to tribute her at The American Music Awards next month.
According to The Associated Press, Dick Clark Productions has tapped Mary Mary, Donnie McClurkin, CeCe Winans, Gladys Knight and Ledisi.
Musical director, Rickey Minor, will oversee the tributary segment recognizing the Queen of Soul and her iconic album, Amazing Grace, at the Oct. 9 event.
It will air live on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Franklin died last month. She won six AMAs throughout her career and even hosted the show in 1976 and 1983.
