Affair: 2018 MusicCares Person of the Year Award and Annual Benefit Gala

When: Friday, January 26, 2018 @ 7:30PM

Hot Spot: Radio City Music Hall, NYC

Deets: Two-time GRAMMY winners Fleetwood Mac will be honored at the 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year tribute on Friday, Jan. 26, 2018, at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

The first band in the award's history to receive the honor, Fleetwood Mac will be honored in recognition of their significant creative accomplishments and their longtime support of a number of charitable causes, including MusiCares, the premier safety net of critical resources for the music industry.

Established by the Recording Academy in 1989, the MusiCares Foundation was designed to provide a safety net for music people in times of need, including resources and services covering a wide range of financial, medical, and personal emergencies.

MusiCares' signature gala, Person of the Year, has been a monumental component of the Foundation's efforts. The gala was launched in 1991, honoring David Crosby in New York prior to the 33rd Annual GRAMMY Awards. Taking place each year during GRAMMY Week, the event has continued to grow in size and stature, while the theme has remained constant—to honor a recording artist who has made important contributions to the world of music and demonstrated extraordinary humanitarian and philanthropic efforts. To date, the gala has honored an impressive legion of impactful artists, and it has also produced a treasure trove of spirited tribute performances. Most importantly, the Person of the Year gala has raised more than $90 million for the MusiCares' wide range of programs throughout its history while also drawing national attention to the Foundation’s critical life-changing work.
