HOUSTON (AP) - "One Shining Moment" is getting a new Grammy-winning voice and some team-specific highlights at the end of the NCAA Final Four.

The song has been the backdrop for the highlight piece to wrap up NCAA Tournaments for three decades, and the version by the late Luther Vandross will continue to be used for the national broadcast on TBS.

For TNT and truTV, a rendition by three-time Grammy Award winner Ne-Yo will be used after the first-ever team-specific broadcasts of the national championship game.

Ne-Yo's performance will accompany team-centric highlights of the schools being featured in the Team Stream presentations, following their quest leading up to and during the title game.
