Though Bill Withers, now 80, has been retired from music for nearly 35 years, his contributions are still felt widely through the music community. Among those touched, is R&B singer-songwriter José James who has curated a contemporary program of Withers’ hits such as "Ain't No Sunshine," "Lean On Me," and "Just the Two of Us" as well as deep cuts. The celebration and setlist have been given Withers' blessing.

José James will perform at 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 16 at the Cube at the DSO; 3711 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-576-5111; dso.org; Tickets start at $25.
