Stevie Wonder To Tribute Prince On BET Awards

BET has added Stevie Wonder to their Prince tribute, which features Sheila E., D'Angelo, The Roots and Janelle Monae on the awards on June 26, 2016. 

The tribute, reported by Billboard, will also include a tribute to boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

After the world let out a significant groan at Madonna's tribute to Prince on the Billboard Music Awards, which did include a snippet from Stevie Wonder, we were left wanting more. Of course, BET got called out on sharing that they'd also be doing a Prince tribute right after Madonna walked off stage.

Many people in the twittersphere had asked "Where is Shelia E.?" - Well, it looks like BET listened.

The award show will be on Sunday the 26th of June, and we can't wait to see what Stevie and the rest of the gang have in store.
