Last night, the 71st Emmy Awards kicked off in Los Angeles with the night one of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. "Aretha! A GRAMMY Celebration For The Queen Of Soul" won the Emmy for Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Variety Series or Special.

The tribute special, which took place on Jan. and aired March 10 on CBS, featured performances by a staggering list of artists, including Yolanda Adams, Andra Day, Shirley Caesar, Alessia Cara, Brandi Carlile, Chloe X Halle, Kelly Clarkson, Common, Celine Dion, H.E.R., Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monáe, SZA and BeBe Winans.
The unforgettable night of music was hosted by movie and television actor, writer, director, and producer Tyler Perry.
