Micky Dolenz To Honor Neil Diamond On "GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends"
GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter Neil Diamond has penned plenty of great songs over the years, for himself and other artists, with some of the most memorable being his classics "Sweet Caroline" and "You'll Be A Woman Soon." The icon began his journey as a staff songwriter in New York City, writing catchy pop songs for the Monkees and others, before embarking on a successful career as a performer.
On the upcoming broadcast of "GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends," Diamond, a Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, will be honored by Monkees' vocalist/drummer Micky Dolenz. Together they will perform the GRAMMY-nominated Monkees song, written by Diamond, "I'm A Believer."
"He just writes such incredibly powerful pop tunes and always has," Dolenz shares.
You can watch the performance during the special tribute concert that will air on PBS at 9 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 5 (check your local listings) and will be available to stream starting the next day via pbs.org/gperf.
