Steve Jobs to be honoured with posthumous Grammy award

The Recording Academy is recognising the late Apple CEO’s significant technical contribution to the recording field.

THE LATE CO-FOUNDER of Apple Steve Jobs is to receive a special posthumous award at next year’s Grammy awards, the Recording Academy has revealed.

The Trustees Award, which honours those in a non-performing capacity, acknowledges Jobs’ role in transforming the way the world consumes music.

“A creative visionary, Jobs’ innovations revolutionised the industry and how music was distributed and purchased,” said the Academy.

Diana Ross is also among the Special Merit Awards recipients. The awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, 12 February next year.

Jobs died on 5 October following a long battle with cancer.
