All the honors fall under the category of Special Merit Awards from the Recording Academy, the organization behind the Grammys that represents those working in the music industry.

Neil Portnow, president and chief executive officer of the Recording Academy, hailed the honorees in a statement.

"These exceptionally inspiring figures are being honored as legendary performers, creative architects, and technical visionaries. Their outstanding accomplishments and passion for their craft have created a timeless legacy."

A special award presentation ceremony and concert celebrating the honorees will be held this summer.

The 60th annual Grammy Awards will air live from New York on January 28 on CBS.
