March 10 (UPI) -- Rapper Common is set to host a 2-hour CBS special called A Grammy Salute to the Sounds of Change on March 17.
The program will feature appearances by Yolanda Adams, Leon Bridges, Terrace Martin, Eric Church, Andra Day, Cynthia Erivo, John Fogerty, Gayle King, Patti Labelle, Brad Paisley, Billy Porter, Leann Rimes and Chris Stapleton.
The artists will be seen performing songs that have "seen us through the darkest hours and greatest triumphs of the 20th and 21st centuries," a network press release said Tuesday.
"Notable performances include Gladys Knight singing Marvin Gaye's 'What's Going On?' alongside Adam Blackstone, Shelia E., Israel Houghton and D Smoke, Erivo's interpretation of John Lennon's 'Imagine' and Fogerty bringing his 'Weeping in the Promised Land' and 'Fortunate Son' to the stage."
The special will air three days after the 63rd annual Grammy Awards ceremony is broadcast on CBS.
Both specials will also be available to stream live and on demand via Paramount+.
Trevor Noah is hosting Sunday's Grammy Awards presentation, which celebrates the previous year's best in music.
