MusiCares has named Grammy Award winner and philanthropist Jon Bon Jovi as the 2024 MusiCares Person of the Year.
The founding member of American rock band Bon Jovi, he will be honored at the 33rd annual Person of the Year benefit gala.
The tribute will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on February 2, 2024, two nights before the Grammy Awards. Proceeds from the event will provide essential support for MusiCares.
“I’m truly humbled to be this year’s MusiCares honoree,” said Bon Jovi. “MusiCares’ work with music professionals is vitally important in creating much needed support and wellness programs that cultivate a healthier and more vibrant community for us all.”
“Philanthropic work has been a cornerstone of my life and has always run in tandem to my music career and achievements,” he added. “Nearly two decades ago when I formed the JBJ Soul Foundation and JBJ Soul Kitchens, I saw firsthand and continue to see today the impact of charitable community-based work. I know this for sure: helping one’s community is helping one’s self.”
The MusiCares Person of the Year tribute ceremony is one of the most prestigious events held during Grammy Week. It includes a tribute concert, featuring renowned musicians and other artists paying tribute to Jon Bon Jovi.
Rob Mathes will join the special evening as Musical Director.
