Juanes, Juan Luis Guerra, Nelly Furtado and Natalie Cole are among the artists who celebrated Brazilian musician Caetano Veloso at a ceremony honoring him as the Latin Recording Academy's Person of the Year.
Dominican singer, songwriter and producer Juan Luis Guerra is the leading nominee at the 2012 Latin Grammy Awards.
In accepting the honor, Veloso said, "It's too much."
Veloso said in the video that he never decided to become a musician, but fate and the circumstances of life in Brazil moved him in that direction.
