D’Angelo, The Roots, And More To Perform Prince Tribute At BET Awards
The 2016 BET Awards are going down this Sunday, June 26 at 8PM EST, and will include a very special tribute to Prince. Early this morning, on the Purple One’s birthday, the network revealed the specific performers with a video announcement that included an initial lineup of The Roots, D’Angelo, Sheila E., Janelle Monae, and others.While musicians have been paying tribute to the legend worldwide, this certainly isn’t the first televised performance. Madonna honored Prince at last month’s Billboard Awards, performing “Nothing Compares 2 U” and “Purple Rain” with help from Questlove and a surprise special guest appearance from Stevie Wonder, which you can watch here. Happy Birthday, Prince!Learn more about the BET tribute here.
