Organizers of the upcoming Grammys ceremony have lined up some top performers for a tribute to victims of tragedies at live music events.

Brothers Osborne, Eric Church and Maren Morris will take part in the tribute. Hosted by James Corden, the ceremony is set to air Sunday, Jan. 28, on CBS.

“In addition to honoring musical excellence at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, CBS and the Recording Academy will also take a moment to honor the victims lost to gun violence and terrorism at various live music events over the course of the past year,” CBS said in a press release. “In a special Grammy tribute performed by three of the artists who participated in the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, current Grammy nominees Brothers Osborne, past Grammy nominee Eric Church and Grammy winner and current nominee Maren Morris will come together for the touching segment.”

Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy, added: “Live music events have always provided a safe space for fans to gather in a shared celebration of music. Sadly, that wasn’t always the case this past year. We believe it’s incredibly important to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in these senseless tragedies, and to remind musicians and music lovers alike that live music will continue to be a powerful force that unites us all.”

Previously announced performers include Alessia Cara, Cardi B, Miley Cyrus, Childish Gambino, Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi, Elton John, Kesha, Khalid, Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Little Big Town, Logic, Patti LuPone, Bruno Mars, P!nk, Ben Platt, Sam Smith, SZA and U2.

The ceremony will air live from Madison Square Garden in New York (7:30-11:00 PM, live ET/4:30-8:00 PM, live PT) on CBS.
