Grammys to honour late Steve Jobs for contribution to music

The Grammys will pay special tribute to late Apple founder Steve Jobs, Brazil’s Tom Jobim – of [Girl from Ipanema’ fame – and US singer Diana Ross at the upcoming awards show, the organisation announced Wednesday. The Apple co-founder and mind behind the wildly popular iPod, iPad and iPhone died in October after battling pancreatic cancer. Jobs, a Trustees Award honouree, will be remembered as having helped “create products and technology that transformed the way we consume music, TV, movies, and books,” a statement from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences said. Lifetime Achievement Awards will be given to the Allman Brothers Band, country crooner Glen Campbell, Antonio Carlos Jobim, country star George Jones, soul stars the Memphis Horns, Ross and rap trailblazer Gil Scott-Heron, at the 54th edition of the awards fete.
