SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — Before you hear it, sing along with it, hum it or dance to it, someone has to come up with the idea and set it to music.

That’s the idea behind an event set for Grammy week — and it will feature performances from artists like Bonnie Raitt and Kris Kristofferson.

They will take part in the event “A Star Is Born” — also known as the Grammy Foundation Legacy Concert.

Aside from Raitt and Kristofferson, performers will include Jimmy Webb, Steve Cropper and Paul Wilson — as well as current Grammy nominees Sklar Gray and John Rzeznik.
