Today (April 21) marks the fourth anniversary of the untimely death of Prince. The legend will be honored tonight on “Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute To Prince.” The show will air at 9 pm ET on CBS.

The special, which will be hosted by comedian Maya Rudolph, will feature tribute performances by Usher, Sheila E., Miguel, Common, Earth, Wind & Fire, H.E.R., John Legend and many more. Naomi Campbell, Misty Copeland, FKA Twigs and Jimmy Jam will make appearances at the event.

“It’s a celebratory night,” Campbell said. “The initial shock [of Prince’s death] is over, but we still miss him. I really wanted him to have the celebration he deserved, so I’m really happy they did this.”

Prince was nominated for 38 Grammys in the span of his musical career. He won seven of those nominations. The “When Doves Cry” singer passed away on April 21, 2016 from an accidental overdose of opioid fentanyl.

DJ D-Nice is set to kick off a preshow edition of “Club Quarantine” on his Instagram account tonight to also pay tribute to the late legend.

“Tonight we’re celebrating the musical genius of Prince!” he wrote on Instagram. “I’ll be hosting a Live pre-show DJ set before the Recording Academy’s CBS special ‘Let’s Go Crazy: GRAMMY Salute To Prince’ on my IG Live. 1st set begins at 8 pm ET and the 2nd set begins at 8 pm PT. @RecordingAcademy @MusiCares #GRAMMYSalutePrince • Tag a friend. Everyone’s invited!”

“No matter the generation of music lover, everyone can agree that Prince is timeless. I’m reminded of this whenever I play his music anywhere in the world,” said D-Nice. “Prince will always be one of my favorite artists, and I’m honored to help celebrate him today.”
