Carole King will receive the Grammy Award Honoree.
The legendary singer-songwriter Carole King will receive the honorary award Person of the Year at the Grammy Awards, the Oscars of the music in the United States, which will be presented in Los Angeles next January.
King, whose 1971 album "Tapestry" remained in the ranking of music for six years, will be honored by various artists, including James Taylor, Lady Gaga, Bette Midler and The Dixie Chicks, at the 56th ceremony of the Grammy.
"Her contribution as a songwriter and artist have really changed the landscape of pop music, and her philanthropy speaks volumes about her generosity and her personal passions," said Neil Portnow, president of the Recording Academy, who organizes annual Grammy Awards.
King, who will receive the award "MusiCares Person of the Year", is known for his hits "You've Got a Friend" and "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?". In her long career, the 71 year old singer won four Grammys and integrates the Hall of Fame Rock and Roll in Ohio (north).
Among the most recent recievers of the award "MusiCares Person of the Year", which began to be granted in 1989, are Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Barbra Streisand. Were also recognized in the past Elton John, Paul Simon, Billy Joel and Bono.
The award will be presented Jan. 14 in Los Angeles, days before the Grammy show, to be held on January 26 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
