Past MusiCares Person of the Year honorees include a heavy list of legends such as Bob Dylan, Bono, Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, Barbara Streisand, Bruce Springsteen-- among many other music luminaries. 

Proceeds from the annual Person of the Year tribute — now in its 26th year — provide essential support for MusiCares, which ensures that music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical and personal need.

Richie has already been on everyone's lips this week, since he was the subject of a hilarious meme that mashed up his iconic 1983 hit, "Hello," with Adele's recently released song of the same name:
