The Jonas Brothers, Faith Hill, Stevie Wonder and Jerry Seinfeld are among an all-star lineup that will honor McCartney at the event.

Performers announced Monday also will include White Stripes singer and guitarist Jack White, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello and others.

Last year, President Barack Obama presented Wonder with the nation's highest award for pop music. Paul Simon won the first Gershwin prize in 2007.
