Elton John to pay tribute to Helm

Sir Elton John will perform a tribute to Levon Helm

Sir Elton John is set to pay tribute to Levon Helm at the Grammys.

The Rocket Man star will be joined by Mumford And Sons when he honours the singer and drummer, who died of complications from cancer last year aged 71.

T Bone Burnett, Mavis Staples, Zac Brown and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes will also perform The Weight at the awards ceremony on February 10, it has been announced.

The performers will sing the song during the show's in memoriam tribute, which honours musicians who died last year.

Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich said the line-up of performers is a representation of Helm's diverse sound.

Promoting a more democratic approach will cause your stature to rise. Don't be surprised if a group asks you to run for office.More
