The annual event will take place on Feb.8 2013 two days prior to the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.
"Bruce Springsteen is a truly gifted and Renaissance artist of our time, a national treasure, and an exemplary humanitarian," said President/CEO of the MusiCares Foundation, Neil Portnow. "His career is a testament to the power of creative excellence, and his contributions as a philanthropist speak to the tenacity of the human spirit. We are privileged and honoured to pay tribute to Bruce this year as our MusiCares Person of the Year."
Next year will also mark the 40th anniversary of Bruce's debut LP, 'Greetings From Asbury Park.'
