THIS YEAR'S MUSICARES EVENT IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT

HAIM, H.E.R., Jhené Aiko and John Legend are on the bill for MusiCares' annual event, a virtual celebration that will take the place of the in-person Person of the Year gala. The fundraiser will also feature archival performances by Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty and Usher.

Music on a Mission, a virtual fundraiser honoring the resilience of the music community impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, will be presented 3/12, two nights before the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.

Carole King, the Jonas Brothers, Ledisi, Lionel Richie, Macklemore, Mick Fleetwood, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Shakira and Jesse & Joy will also appear at the event, which is open to the public. Tickets are $25, with an upgrade available.

Since the start of the pandemic, MusiCares has distributed more than $22m to help more than 25,000 people across the industry.

Said MusiCares Executive Director Laura Segura. "After surveying the music industry, it's clear the pandemic has taken a financial and mental toll. As the leading foundation dedicated to the health and welfare of music people, it is our responsibility to support music people through this pandemic and beyond. We're thrilled to pay tribute to the people who have kept the music playing."

Sponsors include Amazon Music, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Greenberg Traurig LLP, ASCAP, Live Nation and SoundCloud.
