Rhinebeck, NY (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream has been selected to be featured during the fund-raising silent auction at the 23rd annual MusiCares tribute gala on February 8th honoring Bruce Springsteen. The legendary “Boss” has been designated as the 2012 MusiCares’ Person of the Year in recognition of his extraordinary creative accomplishments as well as his significant charitable works and philanthropic activities.
Proceeds from the benefit gala dinner and concert — to be held in Los Angeles during GRAMMY Week two days prior to the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards — will provide essential support for MusiCares, which ensures that music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical and personal need.
"Bruce Springsteen is a truly gifted and Renaissance artist of our time, a national treasure, and an exemplary humanitarian," says Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the MusiCares Foundation and The Recording Academy. "His career is a testament to the power of creative excellence, and his contributions as a philanthropist speak to the tenacity of the human spirit.”
The 2013 MusiCares gala—which will be hosted by Jon Stewart—features a cocktail reception, silent auction, dinner, award presentation, and a star-studded tribute concert. Elton John, Neil Young, Jackson Browne, Emmylou Harris, Faith Hill, Patti Smith, Sting, and other will be on hand to celebrate Springsteen. Arranger/composer and nationally renowned music producer Rob Mathes will be the evening's musical director.
Springsteen's recording career spans nearly 40 years, beginning with his 1973 Columbia Records release Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. By 1975, the covers of both Time and Newsweek declared Springsteen's music a national phenomenon. He has released 17 studio albums, garnered 20 GRAMMY Awards and won an Oscar (for "Streets of Philadelphia" from 1993's Philadelphia). He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2009 he was a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors. His albums Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A. have been inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame. Springsteen's latest album, Wrecking Ball, was released in March.
“The Boss” was one of many performers who played the 12/12/12 Hurricane Sandy charity concert to raise funds for the thousands affected by the super storm, and in past years he has lent his star power to a number of other causes. Fighting hunger and homelessness are issues near to his heart, and he’s raised hundreds and thousands of dollars for relief efforts.
Topical BioMedics has provided a “Remedies for Your Extremities” gift basket filled with various sizes of Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream and Topricin Foot Therapy Cream, as well as Women’s Foot Retreat Spa Kit and a Men’s Foot Retreat Spa Kit.
