“We’re bringing together such a unique lineup of artists not only to pay tribute to Mr. Gordy, Mr. Robinson and Motown, but also to raise awareness of the critical health and social service needs within the music community,” Laura Segura, Executive Director of MusiCares, said in a statement. “The funds raised from Person of the Year will allow MusiCares to continue to provide vital services throughout the year to the music community and continue to serve those who make the songs and event she all love possible.”
Four Tops, Lalah Hathaway, The Isley Brothers, Samara Joy, Michael McDonald, PJ Morton, The Temptations, Trombone Shorty, Valerie Simpson, Molly Tuttle, Dionne Warwick, Rita Wilson and Sebastián Yatra are also scheduled to perform at the event.
“I am so excited to share the always wonderful MusiCares events with my best friend Smokey Robinson and I can’t wait to hear these wonderful artists celebrate the Motown music,” Motown founder Berry Gordy said in a statement. “I’m so excited for this year’s MusiCares lineup. These artists are my friends and I not only love them, but I’m honored that they will be performing my music, along with hits from the Motown catalogue.”
