McCartney MusiCares Person of the Year

A DAY IN THE LIFE: And the 2012 MusiCares Person of the Year is… Paul McCartney. Proceeds from the dinner and concert—to be held in Los Angeles during Grammy Week next Feb. 10—will provide essential support for MusiCares. "Paul McCartney exemplifies the phrase 'artist/philanthropist,' and his extraordinary career is certainly a testament to the multifaceted power of his creative genius," said Recording Academy head Neil Portnow. "The unique talent, dedication, and spontaneity he brings to his projects and live performances are unsurpassed, but are equaled by the impressive generosity and commitment he consistently devotes to a range of important charitable causes." Said Macca: "I've been given a great gift—a life making music—and it's my privilege to try to make the world a better place by giving back. For more than 20 years, MusiCares has helped so many music people in times of crisis—whether with emergency financial assistance or access to addiction recovery resources—and it is an honor to be recognized as the 2012 MusiCares Person of the Year."
