Patti Labelle, SHEILA E, Chaka Khan and JELLYBEAN JOHNSON are among a host of stars teaming up to perform in a special PRINCE-inspired concert.

The singers will get together to perform at the FAMILY JAMM 2003 at Los Angeles' GREAT WESTERN FORUM on Saturday (13DEC03) at the event based around the RASPBERRY BERET star's music.

Sheila E says, "We're doing all the songs Prince wrote or helped us write that were hits during the '80s, like GLAMOROUS LIFE.

"Patti is doing YO MISTER. Chaka is doing I FEEL FOR YOU. THE REVOLUTION (Prince's former group) is doing HOLE IN YOUR HEAD, Kiss and BOYS AND Girls."

Sheila E, who has been candid about having been a victim of child abuse, says the proceeds from the concert will go to her LIL' ANGEL BUNNY FOUNDATION, which helps abused and abandoned children.

She's also hoping Prince will put in an appearance at the show, saying, "We invited him to come, but he's been busy doing his tours as well. We'll see."
