Musician Jon Bon Jovi will receive a new honor next year! Bon Jovi has been named to be 2024’s MusiCares Person of the Year and will be honored at a ceremony in February.
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.”
