Eight-time Latin Grammy winner and two-time Grammy winner, Brazil’s Caetano Veloso will be celebrated as the 2012 Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year!

Songs from Caetano’s catalog will be performed by an impressive array of notable artists and friends of the honoree.

A portion of the net proceeds from the gala will benefit his chosen charity, Fundacion Viva Cazuza in Brazil — a not-for-profit HIV prevention and treatment organization for children and young people — as well as The Latin Recording Academy’s outreach and education programs.

Interesting that they went with an alternative choice this year and not someone so mainstream! Congrats!
