The one and only Neil Young will be honored with the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award at Canada's 40th annual Juno Awards on March 27h in Toronto. The award recognizes an outstanding Canadian artist whose humanitarian contributions have positively enhanced the social fabric of Canada, and it is given out by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS). Young fits that bill, for sure.
"We are thrilled to salute Neil Young's committed and compassionate legacy," CARAS President and CEO Melanie Berry said in a statement. "As a driving force behind one of music's most successful fundraising events, Farm Aid, and a key participant in Live 8 right here at home, plus many other deserving causes and programs, his tenacity and spirit is highly regarded among his peers and serves as an inspiration to all of us."
Congrats to Neil Young on winning this award.
