Wonder, Aguilera among performers to honor Prince at concert

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera and Chaka Khan are among the performers who will honor Prince at a Minnesota concert.

Tori Kelly, Anita Baker and Doug E. Fresh also are part of Thursday night’s lineup at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Prince’s ex-wife, Mayte Garcia, has been added to the concert, and Prince will be represented by members of his inner circle, including Morris Day & The Time.

Pop star John Mayer has bowed out, citing a “change of schedule.”

The Prince family-sanctioned concert originally was planned for the Minnesota Vikings’ new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, but was moved to the smaller Xcel Energy Center, home of the NHL’s Minnesota Wild.

Prince died of an accidental painkiller overdose at his Paisley Park recording complex in April.
