    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Bruce Springsteen will be honored tonight for his music and philanthropy as the 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year.

    The boss is expected to perform at the  Los Angeles Convention Center event, which will be hosted by Jon Stewart of Comedy Central’s “The Daily show.”

    Also scheduled to perform are Alabama Shakes, Jackson Browne, Kenny Chesney, Ben Harper, Emmylou Harris, Faith Hill, Jim James, Elton John, Juanes, John Legend, Natalie Maines, Tim McGraw, Tom Morello, Mumford and Sons, Patti Smith, Mavis Staples, Sting, Eddie Vedder and Neil Young.

    The event will also include a gala dinner and a live auction of an Acura RLX and other items, with the proceeds going to MusiCares, which provides people in the music industry with support in times of financial, medical and personal need.

    Neil Portnow, the head of the Recording Academy, has been planning for years to have Springsteen honored by MusiCares.

    He told Daily Variety that he “seeded the conversation” for years with Springsteen’s representatives and confirmed Springsteen’s participation nearly a year ago. Springsteen has been involved in planning the event, including having a hand in the selection of the artists on the bill, Variety reported.
