While #Grammyweekend is taking the less conventional approach in 2016 (moving the ceremony to Monday), that hasn’t stopped the usual goings-ons from preceding it. One such annually anticipated event is the celebration of MusiCares “Person of the Year,” with this year’s honor going to the legendary Lionel Richie.
In an homage that garnered contribution from the likes of some of today’s brightest Grammy winners John Legend, Usher, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, and more, the February 13th event saw representation from every genre Richie’s rich discography has touched (R&B, soul, pop, country, and more).
Tuck in below to see some snaps of the night’s highlights:
