Steve Jobs To Receive Posthumous Grammy Award
The Recording Academy will honor the late Apple co-founder with a Trustee Award for his contributions to the music industry.
Steve Jobs is getting a Grammy, posthumously.
The Recording Academy announced the Apple co-founder will receive a Trustee Award for his contributions to the music business.
"This year's honorees offer a variety of brilliance, contributions and lasting impressions on our culture," said Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow in a statement. "It is an honor to recognize such a diverse group of individuals whose talents and achievements have had an indelible impact on our industry."
Besides the iTunes innovator, other Trustee honorees include musician Dave Bartholomew and recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder. The 54th Annual Grammy Awards will be presented Feb. 12 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. CBS will broadcast the event live at 8 p.m. ET.
Meanwhile, the software company Graphisoft has commissioned what is possibly the world's first statue of Jobs (via All Things D). It is bronze, located in front of Graphisoft's Budapest headquarters and shows the tech mogul wearing his trademark jeans and turtleneck.
Jobs, who died in October at the age of 56 after a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer, was the visionary behind Apple inventions including iTunes, iPad and iPhone. He's since been named 2011's "Media Person of the Year" by I Want Media and Barbara Walter's "Most Fascinating Person" of the year.
