This year’s North American International Auto Show Charity Preview will be getting an added dose of “Heart and Soul,” thanks to musical guests Huey Lewis and the News.

The blues-rock standbys will perform a free show at the conclusion of the Charity Preview, NAIAS execs announced Monday.

“Having such an iconic group as Huey Lewis and The News adds even more excitement and entertainment to an action-packed evening of glitz, glamor and giving,” Paul Sabatini, 2016 NAIAS Chairman, said in a statement.

Huey Lewis and the News take on a slot that in previous years has been filled by the Steve Miller Band, Sheryl Crow and Uncle Kracker.

The band’s last area performance was in August at Freedom Hill Amphitheater in Sterling Heights.

The NAIAS Charity Preview, which is touted as the largest single night fundraiser in the world, will be held Jan. 15.

Tickets, $400, are on sale now at charitypreview.com.
