Prince will be honored at Carnegie Hall’s annual concert to raise money for music education this year.
In a statement, organizer of the benefit concert Michael Dorf said, “Prince is one of the most prolific songwriters in my collection, and he makes my Top 10 when I think about the artists who have truly shaped modern music.”
The Roots, Talib Kweli, and the Blind Boys of Alabama are a few of the acts that will perform, paying tribute to the songs of the legendary singer-songwriter.
The Carnegie Hall annual benefit concert helps to support education programs in poor communities. The beneficiaries this year include the American Symphony Orchestra’s Music Notes, Little Kids Rock and the Center for Arts Education.
Prince’s music career spans three decades. Earning 33 nominations, Prince has won seven Grammy awards. He also has had two albums − 1999 and Purple Rain − awarded the Grammy Hall of Fame Award.
The benefit concert will take place March 7.
