Late Monday, the network announced Sheila E, Janelle Monae, the Roots, and D’Angelo will all be hitting the stage at this year’s BET Awards for what’s sure to be an amazing tribute to Prince.
All of the artists listed were extremely close to Prince, so you know they will slay their performances. Just after Prince passed away, D’Angelo appeared with the Roots on the Tonight Show to sing a haunting cover of Prince’s “Sometimes in April.”
While BET said the current lineup is just the beginning, it looks like Prince fans are in for a real treat.
The BET Awards hit airwaves Sunday, June 26.
