Sting is one of only several dozen to receive the coveted award.
The American Music Award of Merit is “only given to artists who have made truly exceptional contributions to the music industry,” and undeniably Sting is someone who has.
Before accepting the prestigious award, Sting took the stage to sing a string of hits, including "I Can’t Stop Thinking About You."
