Amy Winehouse’s former backing band is to lead a tribute to the late star at the VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul concert on Sunday.
The Dap Kings will join bandleader Sharon Jones, Florence Welch and Wanda Jackson as part of a salute to the tragic Brit, who died in July at the age of 27.

Jones will perform a rendition of You Know I’m No Good, while Welch and Jackson will tackle Winehouse’s Back to Black.

The medley will be introduced by rapper Nas, who collaborated with Winehouse on the first single from her current posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures.

Also performing at the televised concert will be Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, Jill Scott, Chaka Khan, Erykah Badu, Anita Baker and Mavis Staples.

Dolly Parton, Queen Latifah, Terrence Howard and Common will join Nas as presenters.

The show will air on 19 December.
