I was just clicking away on my SPOTIFY desktop app and clicked on the FUSE TV button to find that they’ve compiled a special playlist for the 2012 GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award recipients. Imagine my utter surprise and joy when I spotted DIANA ROSS and GIL SCOTT-HERON on the list! I’m such a fan of these two amazing artists and cannot wait to hear more about who will pay tribute to them.
Another great factoid: the backing band for legends such as ISSAC HAYES, OTIS REDDING, and ARETHA FRANKLIN, MEMPHIS HORNS, will also be honored at the Staple Center February 12th. I can only imagine what that tribute will sound like.
The 2012 GRAMMYs is already shaping up to be pretty soulful and I can’t hate on that! If you’d like to take a listen to this awesome playlist that features THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND, GEORGE JONES, and others, click HERE but make sure you’ve created an account with SPOTIFY first. It’s a great service that you won’t regret using.
