Tonight rocker and Hurricane Sandy Relief advocate Bruce Springsteen joins the ranks of those such as Bono, Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin and Paul McCartney as he becomes 2013’s MusiCares Person of the Year at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Downtown L.A.
A huge number of celebrities and artists will all be in attendance as “The Boss” is honored as the 23rd recipient of this award recognizing outstanding achievement in philanthropic endeavors from a musician. This acts not only as an evening of raucous goodwill expressed through the power of music, but also as a prelude to the Grammys this upcoming Sunday.
Hosted by comedian and zealous fan of Springsteen, Jon Stewart, the star-studded event will pay homage to the man of the hour with performances from Elton John, Mumford & Sons, Sting, Neil Young and Jackson Browne. All the proceeds from this sold out show go to the MusiCares foundation that aids musicians struggling with personal, financial and medical problems.
Springsteen, an amazing 20-time Grammy winner, is no stranger to being saluted during Grammy Week, but this award credits the New Jerseyan for his music as well as his personal character and benevolent attitude, making it an extra special tribute.
