Perry will be recognized for her considerable creative accomplisments as a music producer and songwriter, as well as her longtime support of a number of charitable causes through We Are Hear, her combination record label, publishing house, management company and production entity she launched with multiplatinum producer Kerry Brown in 2017, which recently raised $1 million for Woolsey Fire recovery with their One Love Malibu Festival benefit concert. Perry also recently participated in GRAMMYs On The Hill, where she joined a group of GRAMMY winners and nominees in meeting with lawmakers in our nation's capitol to discuss policy and issues impacting the livlihood of music creators.
"Linda Perry is one of the greatest influences on modern pop music, having worked with some of the most successful artists of this generation, which is why we are incredibly grateful to be able to honor her at Linda Perry & Friends: A Night at the GRAMMY Museum," said Michael Sticka, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum. "She has been deeply influential as both a songwriter and producer, showcasing the legacy one can create not only on stage, but behind the scenes, and is an exemplary artist for the students in our music education programs to look up to."
An inductee of the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, Perry has worked with such as P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, and Adele, and was also nominated last year for the GRAMMY Award for Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical, making her the first woman in 15 years to receive a nod in the category.
"I am excited and honored to be a part of Linda Perry & Friends: A Night at the GRAMMY Museum," said Perry. "It's even more special knowing the gala benefits music education, something I'm incredibly passionate about. I can't wait to celebrate with some of the great artists I've had the pleasure of working with during my career."
