D'Angelo, Ed Sheeran, Aloe Blacc To Pay Tribute to Bill Withers

(Radio.com) 42 years after the release of Bill Withers' classic Live At Carnegie Hall album, a stellar group of artists will come together at that legendary venue to recreate that album's setlist, and to perform other songs from his catalog.

The lineup includes Ed Sheeran, D'Angelo, Aloe Blacc, Sheryl Crow, Amos Lee, Keb' Mo', Michael McDonald, Gregory Porter, Kathy Mattea, Ledisi and Dr. John; other artists are expected to be added.

The concert will benefit the Stuttering Association for the Young, which is appropriate as Withers himself has stuttered since childhood and has worked with SAY for almost a decade. "Bill is a champion for all young people who stutter and has been a voice for more than 70 million people who stutter worldwide. SAY is honored to be part of what is sure to be a legendary night," said Taro Alexander, SAY Founder & President in a press release announcing the concert. Read more here.
