CBS is all about Aretha Franklin Sunday night with its “Aretha! A Grammy Celebration For The Queen Of Soul” 2019 tribute concert.

While the two-hour event won’t be airing live, as it was taped on Jan. 13 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, it will be the first time fans get to see the tribute on TV. With a long lineup of performers and Tyler Perry as host, viewers can expect a very special concert.

Smokey Robinson, Yolanda Adams, Shirley Caesar, Alessia Cara, Brandi Carlile, Chloe X Halle, Kelly Clarkson, Common, Celine Dion, H.E.R., Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monáe, SZA and BeBe Winans will all be performing some of Franklin’s biggest hits during the show.

“This special will celebrate Aretha Franklin’s numerous accomplishments as an entertainment icon, singer, songwriter, pianist, actress and civil rights activist,” Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President of Specials, Music and Live Events for CBS, said in a press release. “Aretha had an incredible effect on humanity and music with her indomitable spirit and grace. We look forward to honoring this music legend with numerous performers who all admire and respect the Queen of Soul.”

Clive Davis added: “Aretha was more than the Queen of Soul; she was a national treasure. This unique concert — featuring many of today’s greatest artists — will celebrate Aretha in a spectacular manner befitting her once-in-a-lifetime talent.”

Catch all of the performances when the 2019 “Aretha! A Grammy Celebration For The Queen Of Soul” tribute special airs on CBS on Sunday at 9 p.m. EST.
