And after talking that mess, the network is ready to back it up, with plans to honor the late legend with a performance featuring D’Angelo, Janelle Monáe, Sheila E. and The Roots. In a tweet, the network announced those artists are “only a few” that will be involved in the tribute. Also, it’s worth noting that Roots drummer Questlove helped produce Madonna’s Prince performance.
