Cee Lo to Appear on Jimi Hendrix Tribute Album
Still riding high on the success of his mega-single ‘F— You,’ Cee Lo will add his vocals to the ‘Power of Soul: A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix,’ out next month. For the album, the Atlanta native performed his take on the famed guitarist’s 1967 hit ‘Foxey Lady.’
The album is one of many Hendrix tributes and previously unreleased work, all expected to drop this year, via Sony Recordings. Other big names appearances on ‘Power of Soul’ include Prince, Eric Clapton, Lenny Kravitz, Santana, Musiq Soulchild and Chaka Khan.
