Additional Chicago natives Common and Chance's brother and rapper Taylor Bennett will also appear over the weekend. Saturday will feature Queen Latifah performing Stevie Wonder's "Love's in Need of Love Today." with youth from Chicago. Bryant died tragically January 26 after a helicopter accident that also claimed the life of his daughter Gianna and seven other victims.
