A myriad of artists – including Bette Middler, Steven Tyler, Lady Gaga, James Taylor and Jason Mraz – are currently billed to honour the 2014 MusiCares person of the year Carole King.
The fundraiser is scheduled for the 24th of January 2014, two days before the Grammy Awards. The funds being raised are for MusiCares’ health services program. This is a multifaceted program that amongst many things provides addiction recovery through its MAP fund to those in the music community.
The Recording Academy started the event 24 years ago and the 4 time grammy winner joins artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Sir Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson, and Paul Simon in being honoured. The event wishes to celebrate her musical contribution as well as her many charitable efforts. See her perform ‘You’ve Got A Friend’ below.
