To commemorate the occasion, NYC's Electric Lady Studios and Daniel's family have put together a tribute to the beloved outsider artist and musician. "Honey I Sure Miss You, A Tribute To The Life Of Daniel Johnston" features artists covering his songs, as well as a previously unseen home video of Daniel, art, poetry, and more. It airs at tonight at 9 PM ET at electricladystudios.com and Daniel Johnston's new official YouTube page, and features performances from Jeff Tweedy, Phoebe Bridgers, Waxahatchee, Kevin Morby, Devendra Banhart, Lucius, Cut Worms, Claud, The Lemon Twigs, Adam Green, Fontaines DC, Beck and more.

Meanwhile, Electric Lady also has a curated, permanent collection of Daniel's original artwork on display, "Symbolical Visions" drawing included, in their Studio A.
Electric Lady managing partner Lee Foster says:
"I'm just a huge fan of Daniel Johnston's drawings and music and recognize how beloved he is, especially within the music community. If you're a fan, you're usually a fanatic, and when I started reaching out to musician and industry friends for video submissions, the answer was almost always an all-caps 'YES.' People want to celebrate him."
