Tracy Morgan attends the “Mike And The Mad Dog” Reunion at Radio City Music Hall on March 30, 2016 in New York City.

A legend of the comedy world will salute an icon of the music realm this fall when Tracy Morgan presents Smokey Robinson with the “Rocker of the Year” honor at the eighth annual Little Kids Rock benefit on Oct. 5 in Manhattan.

For Morgan, Robinson’s music goes back to the very beginning. The Saturday Night Live/30 Rock alum once informed reporters that his mother told him he was conceived while a Smokey Robinson song played on the radio.

Another long-running comedian, Tom Papa, will emcee the benefit/concert/auction. All the proceeds from the evening help Little Kids Rock bring instruments and free lessons to more than 250,000 disadvantaged public school kids in 30 cities.
