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.
