Music legends STEVIE WONDER, WILLIE NELSON and BB KING will perform a musical tribute to late music legend RAY CHARLES at his funeral on Friday (18JUN04)

Soul pioneer Charles lost his battle with liver disease last Thursday (10JUN04) at the age of 73.

His coffin will be on display at the LOS ANGELES CONVENTION CENTER on Thursday (17JUN04) for fans to pay their last respects, and the funeral will take place at the city's FIRST AFRICAN METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH a day later.

A spokesman for the singer's family says the trio's tribute "will be a very moving goodbye".

The funeral will also feature recorded tributes from friends and fans including producer QUINCY JONES, former US president BILL CLINTON and comedian BILL COSBY.
