Boss to receive MusiCares' Person of the Year honor at Feb. 8 gala

Bruce Springsteen will be honored as MusiCares’ 2013 Person of the Year at the Recording Academy’s annual benefit dinner and concert during Grammy week next year.

The Feb. 8 event, to be held at a venue to be announced, will raise money for MusiCares, which provides financial, medical and personal services to needy members of the music community. The gala is the Grammy Foundation’s most profitable annual charitable event, and will take place two days before the 2013 Grammy Awards ceremony at Staples Center.

Springsteen, a 20-time Grammy winner, will be recognized for his creative work and his philanthropic activities. The New Jersey-born musician has been especially active in causes to alleviate homelessness and hunger.

NARAS prexy-CEO Neil Portnow said in a statement, “Bruce Springsteen is a truly gifted and Renaissance artist of our time, a national treasure, and an exemplary humanitarian. His career is a testament to the power of creative excellence, and his contributions as a philanthropist speak to the tenacity of the human spirit.”

Springsteen will join a list of recent MusiCares honorees that includes Paul McCartney, Barbra Streisand, Neil Young, and Aretha Franklin.
