The first performers for the special “Stevie Wonder: Songs In The Key Of Life — An All-Star Grammy Salute” concert next month have been announced.

Seven-time Grammy Award winner Chris Martin of Coldplay, singer-songwriter Janelle Monáe, seven-time Grammy Award winner Willie Nelson, current Grammy Award nominee Ed Sheeran and eight-time Grammy Award winner Usher are to perform for the salute for Wonder, a 64-year-old Saginaw native and Motown legend.

The primetime special, presented by The Recording Academy, AEG Ehrlich Ventures and CBS, is paying homage to Wonder’s iconic career with superstar performances celebrating his songbook. The concert is Feb. 10 at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, and the two-hour special will be broadcast 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. EST Feb. 16 on CBS.

A 25-time Grammy Award winner, Wonder is the only artist to have received Album Of The Year honors for three out of four consecutive years with “Innervisions” (1973), “Fulfillingness’ First Finale” (1974) and the seminal “Songs In The Key Of Life” (1976). Among Wonder’s top singles are “Superstition,” “Sir Duke,” “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” and “I Just Called to Say I Love You.”

“Stevie Wonder is an absolute legend and I am so honored to be a part of this very special night,” Sheeran said in a statement.
