Lionel Richie has been named the 2016 MusiCares Person of the Year.
The 66-year-old singer will be honoured with the accolade next year in recognition of his extensive career with the Commodores and as a solo artist, as well as his tireless charitable efforts for causes including breast cancers, AIDS, poverty and human trafficking.
Speaking about the award, he said: ''As far as I'm concerned, this is the highest honor in our music business because it means you have a career.
''You've survived the journey, if you will. The people who have been there defy categories. When you say Barbra Streisand, Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney -- are you kidding me? When I got in this business I wanted to be like them.''
The 'All Night Long' hitmaker - who has sold over 100 million records during his career - will be celebrated at the 26th annual MusiCares benefit gala, which will take place two nights before the 58th Grammy Awards, on February 13 2016.
The evening - which will also include a reception, silent auction and dinner - will be held to raise money for MusiCares, which helps musicians in need of financial, medical or personal help.
Since returning to his musical ventures in 2013, the former Reuben vocalist has become a valuable member of the British alt-rock scene.
