The Recording Academy have revealed they will pay tribute to two of the biggest musical losses of 2016.
During Sunday night’s 2017 Grammy Awards tributes to both Prince and George Michael will take place to remember the icons who died on April 21 and December 25 respectively.
“George Michael and Prince were pop icons who showcased rare musical genius and otherworldly charisma,” Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy says in a statement.
“While each possessed a distinct style and sound, they were both adored by audiences worldwide. The passings of two such creative innovators were a huge loss for the creative community; The Recording Academy is humbled to pay homage to their tremendous legacies on the GRAMMY stage.”
