The Grammy museum announced on Tuesday (April 23) that it will be honoring Linda Perry with the Linda Perry & Friends: A Night at the Grammy Museum gala. Proceeds from the benefit gala will provide essential support for the Grammy Museum foundation, which works for music education and preservation initiatives.
Perry will be recognized for her immeasurable accomplishments as a music producer and songwriter, as well as her activist nature, supporting causes through We Are Hear, which recently raised $1 million for Woolsey Fire recovery with their One Love Malibu Festival benefit concert. She is constantly pushing boundaries in the music industry. In 2018, she was nominated for a Grammy for producer of the year, non-classical, making her the first woman in 15 years nominated in the category.
