MusiCares, an organization that is part of the Grammy foundation which "provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need", honored Neil Young with their "Person of the Year" award for his philanthropy work and musical legacy. Neil Young and his wife Pegi opened the "Bridge School", an "innovative organization educating children with severe speech and physical impairments", and hold benefit concerts every year to raise funds for the cause.
Many artists showed up to pay tribute to Neil Young and MusiCares, from Sheryl Crow to Elton John, and performed some of his biggest songs. The concert was filmed last January in LA, and is currently playing on VH1 Palladia in HD. It will also be available on Blu-ray DVD soon, and proceeds from the sale will go to MusicCares for their work in helping musicians in times of financial and medical distress.
For some great pictures of the event go here, and here is a video of Lady Antebellum singing "Only Love Can Break Your Heart".
