The Recording Academy and Lady Gaga will honor GRAMMY award winner and Lifetime Achievement Award recipient David Bowie at the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards on February 15.
Lady Gage will take the stage at the awards to pay tribute to Bowie with what is expected to be an amazing performance. Directed by three-time GRAMMY winner musical director Nile Rogers, the multi sensory testament to the icon will reflect the creativity and artistry of Bowie, whom Rodgers considered a lifelong friend.
“We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year’s show, but when David passed — almost in a single moment — we knew we had to change direction,” said executive producer of the GRAMMY Awards Ken Ehrlich. “We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honor David. She’s perfect for it. So I reached out to Nile and, before long, we were on our way to creating what we believe will not only make a great GRAMMY Moment, but one befitting of David.”
The GRAMMY Awards will be taking place at STAPLES Center on Monday, February 15 at 5 p.m. PT.
