Tony Bennett and Stevie Wonder top the list of stars announced Wednesday as performers at MusiCares’ Person of the Year gala honoring Barbra Streisand on Feb. 11.

Other names now attached to the L.A. Convention Center dinner and tribute concert, which will recognize Streisand for her artistic and philanthropic work, include Herbie Hancock, Diana Krall, Donna Summer and “Glee” cast members Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison and Darren Criss.

Streisand herself is set to close the evening with a special set.
