The War And Treaty and Shania Twain will perform at this year’s MusiCares Person of the Year benefit gala honoring Jon Bon Jovi on February 2nd, a couple of days before the GRAMMY Awards. The event will be hosted by comedian Jim Gaffigan with presenters Gayle King and Kylie Minogue.
This year’s tribute, taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center, will also include performances by Bon Jovi, Melissa Etheridge, Jason Isbell, Bruce Springsteen, Brandy Clark, Damiano David of Måneskin, Goo Goo Dolls, Jelly Roll, Marcus King and Lainey Wilson.
The Person of the Year event raises funds for MusiCares’ services throughout the year and to celebrate the philanthropy and impact of music legends. Since 1991, money raised from this gala has gone toward providing essential support for MusiCares programs and services assisting the music community in times of need, including physical and mental health, addiction recovery, preventive clinics, unforeseen personal emergencies, and disaster relief.
Jon Bon Jovi joins previous MusiCares honorees including Dolly Parton, Barry Gordy, Smokey Robinson, Joni Mitchell, Fleetwood Mac, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, Lionel Richie, Carole King and many other legendary performers.
