Mick Jagger will make his first-ever live appearance at the Grammy Awards on February 13. The singer will be taking part in the ceremony’s annual “In Memoriam” segment, and will pay tribute to the late gospel soul great Solomon Burke, who died last October. Jagger will be accompanied by Raphael Saadiq and his band.
Despite his long and widely celebrated career in music, Jagger has only once before appeared in a Grammy Awards telecast, in 1986, when he and the rest of the Rolling Stones were presented with the Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award via satellite from London.
