Clark died in April at the age of 82, having suffered a “massive heart attack” after undergoing outpatient surgery.
Wonder will pay tribute to Clark’s legacy with a musical performance on Sunday’s broadcast, which is to be preceded by an introduction by the late host’s successor Ryan Seacrest.
Seacrest said in a statement that he is honored to be saluting Clark: “[Dick was] a mentor, friend and a wonderful advocate for popular music, helping make it one of the cornerstones of American culture. We miss him dearly.”
The 40th annual American Music Awards airs on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 8/7c from Los Angeles. Performers will include Christina Aguilera, Justin Bieber, No Doubt, Psy and Nicki Minaj. Presenters for Sunday’s telecast include Seacrest, Paula Abdul, Heidi Klum, Lady Antebellum, will.i.am and Kerry Washington.
