Kylie Minogue, Luther Vandross, Ashanti, Gloria Gaynor, Deborah Cox, Stephanie Mills, Amber, Anastacia, Shaggy, Eyra Gail, McFadden & Whitehead, Candi Staton, and Chaka Khan are among the musical luminaries who have signed on for New York radio station WKTU's fifth annual Miracle on 34th Street holiday concert, set for Dec. 18 at Madison Square Garden.

The lineup, also set to include a reunion of Patti LaBelle's group LaBelle, will dedicate the concert as a special tribute to Ray Charles. Many of Charles' songs will be performed throughout the evening, with each act backed by the KTU orchestra, led by Joey Melotti.

More acts are expected to be added to the lineup in the coming weeks. Last year's concert featured performances by the likes of Alicia Keys, Shaggy, Craig David, Mya, Shakira, Sugar Hill Gang, and Mary J. Blige.
