Music mogul Clive Davis had been planning to have a special concert at Madison Square Garden in honor of The Queen of Soul before her Aug. 16 death, with hopes of turning it into a TV special. Meanwhile, The Recording Academy's plan to honor Jones for his 85th birthday with a primetime Grammys special tribute has been scrapped. "According to sources close to the network, at the outset, CBS and its partners on the project, working with Jones’ team, put together a wish list of big names to invite to the celebration," reports Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "Half of them turned down the offer, a few who had expressed interest also fell out, and some were interested but wanted more information about the creative and their participation...After a couple more prospective attendees withdrew at the end of last week, the network and its partners felt there were not enough A-list names for a primetime special worthy of Jones’ legacy. Because the iconic producer and his team were looking to do the special by the end of 2018 — the year he turned 85 — CBS, The Recording Academy and Ehrlich opted not to proceed with it."
