The 21st annual event will feature performances by Jeff Beck, Seal, BeBe Winans, Donna Summer, Stevie Wonder, Tony Bennett, Herbie Hancock, Diana Krall, Barry Manilow, Kristin Chenoweth and members of the cast of ‘Glee.’

Barbra will close the evening with a rare performance from the Grammy-winning singer and actress.

Those who have received the honor prior to Barbara include Tony Bennett, Bono, Natalie Cole, Phil Collins, David Crosby, Neil Diamond, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin and many more.

The gala will benefit MusiCares, which offers aid to those in the music industry who find themselves needing financial, medical or personal help.
