R&B and dance artist Jody Watley and her new group Shalamar Reloaded will perform June 4 during the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix on Belle Isle Park.

The Grammy Award-winner will sing her classic hits like “Looking for a New Love” and “Don’t You Want Me,” as well as new music from Shalamar Reloaded’s upcoming album “Bridges.”

Watley, who won the 1987 Best New Artist Grammy, will perform at 1 p.m. Last month Grand Prix organizers announced country music duo Montgomery Gentry will play on June 3. The race events are June 2-4.

Both acts will headline the MotorCity Casino Hotel Entertainment stage, located inside the Meijer Fan Zone at the Raceway.
