According to Ultimate Classic Rock, The Recording Academy established MusiCares back in 1989 to help musicians and music professionals in times of hardship. MusiCares steps in when emergency financial assistance or access to addiction recovery resources is needed. Every year the organization honors one person whose work on stage and off has made a huge impact. McCartney will be honored at a concert and award ceremony on Feb. 12, two days before the 54th Grammy Awards.

“The unique talent, dedication and spontaneity (McCartney) 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” says Grammy President Neil Portnow.
