LeAnn Rimes, Sammy Hagar, Luis Fonsi & More Added To MusiCares Person Of The Year Lineup Honoring Aerosmith
MusiCares have announced the second wave of performers for its 2020 Person Of The Year gala honoring Aerosmith. GRAMMY-winning artists Sammy Hagar and LeAnn Rimes, current GRAMMY nominees Luis Fonsi and Ashley McBryde, past GRAMMY nominees Gavin DeGraw and Johnny Depp and Cheap Trick will take the stage to honor the four-time GRAMMY winning group on Jan. 24 in Los Angeles during GRAMMY Week.
This new crop of performers join the stellar, previously announced lineup, which includes GRAMMY Award-winning artists Gary Clark Jr., Foo Fighters, H.E.R., John Legend, and John Mayer, past GRAMMY Award nominee Alice Cooper and current GRAMMY Award nominees Jonas Brothers, Emily King, and Yola. Greg Phillinganes is also on board as musical director to lead the lineup through renditions of songs from Aerosmith's catalog of hits.
Aerosmith is being recognized for their considerable philanthropic efforts over five decades and undeniable impact on American music history. Through the years, Aerosmith have shown support for a number of charities around the world, including Steven Tyler’s Janie’s Fund.
This year, the MusiCares Person of the Year tribute is celebrating its 30th anniversary and is one of the most prestigious events held during GRAMMY Week. The exclusive gala will begin with a reception and silent auction offering an exclusive and unparalleled selection of luxury items, VIP experiences and one-of-a-kind celebrity memorabilia for bidding guests. The reception, along with a silent auction sponsored by Delta Air Lines — the official airline of Person of the Year — will be followed by a gala dinner sponsored by AEG, tribute concert featuring renowned musicians and other artists, and the award presentation.
Proceeds from the event provide essential support for MusiCares and its vital safety net of health and human services programs, ensuring music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical and personal need.
GRAMMY Week culminates with the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020. The telecast will be broadcast live on the CBS Television Network at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
