To help celebrate Andrew Lloyd Webber's 70th birthday, NBC will air Andrew Lloyd Webber Tribute to a Superstar tonight at 10pm ET.

In addition to featuring Lloyd Webber himself, the TV special will include Glenn Close (who won a Tony Award in 1995 for her performance as Norma Desmond in Lloyd Webber's Sunset Boulevard), John Legend (who will play Jesus Christ in Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert Sunday, April 1, on NBC), Lin-Manuel Miranda, and the Young People's Chorus of New York City.

Tribute to a Superstar comes on the heels of the publication of his new autobiography Unmasked on March 6 and the release of the new album Andrew Lloyd Webber: The Platinum Collection on March 16.
