25th Annual Detroit Music Awards

Distinguished Awards of Achievement were given to ad jingle pioneer Dan Yessian, and the family of founding publicist for Motown Records, Al Abrams, who died in late 2015. Kid Rock, who was to have been presented with a Distinguished Achievement Award, indefinitely postponed his appearance at the show, following the death of Mike Sacha, his personal assistant. Tributes were paid to the lives and works of two recently departed Metro Area greats, trumpeter Marcus Belgrave, and founding Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey.
