The soul/R&B legend is one of four artists who will be recognized for their extraordinary contributions to the music industry during the special ceremony, which will be held in Nashville.
The other honorees are gospel star Kirk Franklin, R&B/hip-hop artist and producer Teddy Riley and R&B producer-songwriter David Porter.
The Legends Luncheon, which is an offshoot of the museum’s “My Music Matters” campaign, celebrates black artists who have made a significant impact on American musical culture.
Tickets to the event can be purchased now, at a retail price of $175 each.
LaBelle is expected to release her first studio album in more than eight years, Bel Hommage, on May 5. The record marks the singer’s first foray into jazz.
