The sold-out gala will take place Feb. 8, 2013, two days prior to the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Additional performers will be announced shortly.

Hosted by Jon Stewart, attendees will include Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy and MusiCares; Scott Pascucci, MusiCares Foundation Board Chair; and Paul Caine, MusiCares Board Chair Emeritus. In addition, a host of celebrities, along with prominent music industry and entertainment executives, are scheduled to attend. Rob Mathes will be the evening's musical director.

The 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year gala, which will celebrate Springsteen's exceptional artistic achievements and philanthropic work, will begin with a cocktail reception and silent auction, sponsored by Starkey Hearing Foundation, that will offer an exclusive and unparalleled selection of luxury items, VIP experiences and one-of-a-kind celebrity memorabilia for bidding guests. The auction will be followed by a gala dinner sponsored by AEG, and a star-studded tribute concert sponsored by Acura/ELS Studio. Acura RLX is the MusiCares "Vehicle of the Year."

During the gala dinner, a live auction will feature an exciting array of items, including a customized Acura RLX. This year's red-carpet press arrivals area will be sponsored by Galactica Park. MusiCares would also like to thank CenterStaging, Delta Air Lines, Double Platinum, Gibson, Global Art, Heineken USA, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Jackson Limo, Pepsi, Sweetwater, and Trattore Estate Wines.

The MusiCares Person of the Year tribute is one of the most prestigious events held during GRAMMY Week. Proceeds from the annual Person of the Year tribute — now in its 23rd year — provide essential support for MusiCares, which ensures that music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical and personal need.

Past MusiCares Person of the Year honorees are Tony Bennett, Bono, Natalie Cole, Phil Collins, David Crosby, Neil Diamond, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin, Don Henley, Billy Joel, Elton John, Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, Luciano Pavarotti, Bonnie Raitt, Paul Simon, Sting, Barbra Streisand, James Taylor, Brian Wilson, Stevie Wonder, and Neil Young.

GRAMMY Week culminates with Music's Biggest Night, the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards, which will take place live on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013, at Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live on the CBS Television Network from 8–11:30 p.m. ET/PT.
