Wanda Jackson will join Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings to pay tribute to the late Amy Winehouse on VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul, premiering tonight at 9 PM ET on VH1. Jackson and Welch will perform Winehouse's "Back to Black," and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, who played on the singer's Back to Black album, take the stage for "You Know I'm No Good." Jackson famously performs that song on her Third Man / Nonesuch Records debut album, The Party Ain't Over, produced by Jack White and released earlier this year.

The performances are part of the new VH1 Divas special, a tribute to the cities where soul gave birth to some of music’s most powerful classics and inspired some of the world’s top musical talents. This year’s event, which will be broadcast from Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, will showcase the impact soul music has had on the 21st century’s music and pop culture landscape.

Jackson and her fellow performers—also including Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Chaka Khan, Mavis Staples, and Jill Scott—will pay homage to the heritage of soul music founded in cities like Chicago, Detroit, London, Memphis, and Philadelphia, all backed by the show’s house band, The Roots.

As in previous years, all proceeds from the VH1 Divas show will go to benefit the VH1 Save the Music Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of music education in a child’s life.

Tune in tonight at 9 PM ET on VH1, and head to vh1.com for additional details.

To pick up a copy of Wanda Jackson's The Party Ain't Over on CD and vinyl, head to the Nonesuch Store, where all CDs, LPs, and DVDs are 34% off till the New Year.

Speaking of the New Year, Wanda Jackson performs a special New Year's Eve concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, on a double bill with Best Coast. To ring in the new year with the Queen of Rockabilly, go to ticketmaster.com.
