Reclusive soul man D’Angelo will join Aloe Blacc and Angelique Kidjo, among others, for an upcoming all-star tribute to James Brown at the Hollywood Bowl.

The “Brown Sugar” singer has been added to the Get On Up: A James Brown Celebration in Los Angeles on Aug. 13.

The show will also feature Bettye LaVette and members of Brown’s band, including Pee Wee Ellis, Fred Wesley, Clyde Stubblefield and Danny Ray.

The concert will coincide with the release of Sir Mick Jagger’s new James Brown biopic “Get On Up”, which features “42” star Chadwick Boseman as the Godfather of Soul.

Brown passed away in 2006, aged 73.
