MusiCares will sing Sting’s praises

Kudos for singer as humanitarian, environmental activist

Sting will be honored as the 2004 MusiCares person of the year at a special tribute dinner, concert and silent auction Feb. 6, two days before the Grammy Awards are held at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Sting was chosen for his accomplishments as a musician, humanitarian and environmental activist. Last year’s honoree was U2’s Bono.

“Sting is a living symbol for what we as a society should strive to celebrate: a one-of-a-kind creative talent with a heart to match,” said Neil Portnow, president of the MusiCares Foundation and the Recording Academy. “His capacity for compassion is limitless, as is his generosity of spirit.”

The singer has long supported human rights orgs such as the Rainforest Foundation, Amnesty Intl., Live Aid and the Carousel of Hope ball, benefiting juvenile diabetes. He has won 10 Grammys.
