Eddy Cue Accepts Grammy Honor For Steve Jobs
In December, we reported the news of Steve Jobs to be honored at the 54th Grammy Awards in 2012.
This past Sunday on 12 February 2012, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Internet software and services Eddy Cue accepted a special trustee Grammy award honoring Late Steve Jobs from the Recording Academy. This was the second Grammy for Steve Jobs.
In 2002, Steve Jobs received a Technical Grammy Award for his work on the iPod, which revolutionized the music industry.
Following video is from the ceremony of Cue delivering his acceptance speech:
Eddy Cue said:
On behalf of Steve’s wife, Laurene, his children, and everyone at Apple, I’d like to thank you for honoring Steve with the Trustees Grammy Award. Steve was a visionary, a mentor, and a very close friend. I had the incredible honor of working with him for the last fifteen years.
Accepting this award means so much to me because music meant so much to him. He told us that music shaped his life…it made him who he was. Everyone that knows Steve knows the profound impact that artists like Bob Dylan and The Beatles had on him.
Steve was focused on bringing music to everyone in innovative ways. We talked about it every single day. When he introduced the iPod in 2001, people asked “Why is Apple making a music player?” His answer was simple: “We love music, and it’s always good to do something you love.”
His family and I know that this Grammy would have been very special to him, so I thank you for honoring him today
