Little Kids Rock is a non-profit that aims to transform and shape lives through the expansion of music programs in schools. Taking place at the PlayStation Theater in New York on October 18, the Little Kids Rock Benefit honors artists who have dedicated their lives and time to this important mission. Raitt, a ten-time Grammy Award-winner, will be receiving one of the night’s biggest honors.

“No other artist friend has supported our kids and teachers for as long, or spoken so frequently and eloquently on our kids’ behalves when it comes to their right to have music in their lives as Bonnie Raitt,” said founder of Little Kids Rock David Wish.

Raitt has been involved with Little Kids Rock for many years, becoming an honorary board member in 2002. She said that she felt it was a privilege to represent the organization and be a part of the mission.

“When I got a guitar for Christmas as a kid I found my voice,” Raitt said. “The arts are not a luxury, they are a right, and all students should have the opportunity to discover their voice.”

Also being recognized at the benefit will be Elvis Costello, who will be awarded the Rocker of the Year Award, and CEO of City Winery Michael Dorf.
