Adam Lambert will pay tribute to late music legend George Michael with a special performance at Project Angel Food’s 27th Annual Angel Awards in Los Angeles, California, on Aug. 19.

The 35-year-old singer will perform a selection of the icon’s biggest hits at the event, where Michael will also be named the recipient of the Elizabeth Taylor Humanitarian Award.

The award reflects Michael’s under-the-radar support of the organization, which provides free meals to people living with illness.

His loyal support included leaving a check for $25,000 on the charity’s doorstep in 1993, right as they were struggling to make ends meet after an influx of AIDS patients turned to Project Angel Food for help.

From that day on, Michael donated the same amount every year, until his death in 2016.

The event will also honor KTLA’s Jason Ball and Gayle Anderson and corporate supporter Nordstrom.
