Jon Bon Jovi Named ’24 MusiCares Person Of The Year!

MusiCares® has named Jon Bon Jovi, GRAMMY® Award winner, 11-time GRAMMY nominee, philanthropist, and founding member of Bon Jovi, as the 2024 MusiCares Person of the Year. The tribute will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Fri, Feb. 2, 2024, two nights before the 66th Annual GRAMMY Awards® next door at Arena on Sun, Feb. 4.

“MusiCares is thrilled to honor Jon Bon Jovi at the 2024 Person of the Year Gala,” said Laura Segura, Executive Director of MusiCares. “His remarkable contributions to rock and roll have not only left an indelible mark on the music industry, but also in the hearts of countless fans around the world. Furthermore, his long-standing commitment to serving food-insecure and unhoused individuals inspires us all. We’re looking forward to celebrating him and the many ways he has made a difference in this world.”

Bon Jovi will be recognized for his philanthropic work, which includes fighting hunger, homelessness, and poverty through the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation.

“I’m truly humbled to be this year’s MusiCares honoree,” Jon Bon Jovi said in a statement. “MusiCares’ work with music professionals is vitally important in creating much-needed support and wellness programs that cultivate a healthier and more vibrant community for us all.”

“Philanthropic work has been a cornerstone of my life and has always run in tandem to my music career and achievements,” he continued. “Nearly two decades ago when I formed the JBJ Soul Foundation and JBJ Soul Kitchens, I saw firsthand and continue to see today the impact of charitable community-based work. I know this for sure: helping one’s community is helping one’s self.”
