The Grammy Awards tonight will include a musical tribute to New Orleans and Southern soul from a specially convened all-star supergroup.

Yesterday, as our exclusive backstage snaps show, Edge joined some of these legendary musicians to get in the groove for this special New Orleans moment.

Word is that those involved include local musicians Allen Toussaint, Irma Thomas and Dr John along with Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen, Sam Moore and Bonnie Raitt.

'Our Academy represents thousands of music people across the country, many of whom were directly affected by the New Orleans tragedy,' said Neil Portnow, President of The Recording Academy. 'Music's biggest night wouldn't be complete if we didn't take this unique opportunity to pay homage to a region with such rich musical history and culture. New Orleans, we'll always be there for you.'
