Glee's Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison, and Darren Criss, along with Herbie Hancock, Barry Manilow, Donna Summer, Diana Krall, Tony Bennett, and Stevie Wonder will pay tribute to Barbra Streisand when she is honored as the 2011 MusiCares Person of the Year on February 11, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The event will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center and will conclude with a performance by Streisand.

The gala is part of Grammy week, with the Grammy Awards scheduled to be presented on February 13 and aired live on CBS-TV. Streisand is being honored for both her creative accomplishments and her philanthropic work.

Proceeds from the tribute will be used to support MusiCares work, which ensures that musicians and members of the industry have a place to turn in times of financial, medical and personal need.
