Tenor Placido Domingo will be honored as the 2010 Latin Recording academy Person of the Year at a tribute dinner and concert on Nov. 10 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas on the eve of the Latin Grammy Awards.

Considered one of the world’s leading operatic voices, Domingo is also the general director of the Washington National Opera and the Los Angeles Opera. A versatile singer with multiple interests, Domingo also has managed to engage non traditional audiences of classical music, first with his now-legendary “Three Tenors” concerts and recordings (next to Jose Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti) and later with his own recordings of popular music.

Domingo also founded Operalia, an annual international voice competition designed to nurture and support the careers of opera's future standard-bearers. He has raised millions of dollars through benefit concerts for the victims of such disasters as Mexico City's devastating 1985 earthquake, Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, and the floods caused by Hurricane Paulina in Mexico. In Lerma, Mexico, he helped found a hospital that has given aid to thousands of people.

"We are privileged to pay tribute to one of the most respected musical voices of our time, as well as a man whose selflessness has benefited many around the world,” said Gabriel Abaroa, President/CEO of The Latin Recording Academy.

Past Person of the year honorees include Gloria Estefan, Juan Gabriel, Julio Iglesias and Carlos Santana.
