Bonnie Raitt is one of music’s biggest living legend, and over the course of her incredible career she has earned many accolades including 10 Grammy Awards.  This coming October, she will receive another big honor as the annual Little Kids Rock Benefit will award her with its Lifetime Achievement Award.

This is an evening that brings together and honors artists and individuals who tirelessly work to bring the gift of music to children in public schools across the United States.  Previous recipients include Smokey Robinson, Lady Gaga, and Joan Jett. This years event will take place on Wednesday, October 18 at PlayStation Theater in New York.

Bonnie Raitt has been a friend of the organization since its humble beginnings during the grassroots movement in the San Francisco Bay Area and quickly, she became an Honorary Board Member in 2002.  Bonnie has previously spoken about her work for the organization, saying “It has been my privilege to represent Little Kids Rock as an Honorary Board Member for over fifteen years.  When I got a guitar for Christmas as a kid I found my voice.  The arts are not a luxury, they are a right, and all students should have the opportunity to discover their voice.

David Wish, founder of Little Kids Rock recalls his professional history with Raitt in saying, “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.”

Also being honored at the Annual Little Kids Rock benefit are Elvis Costello, receiving the Rocker of the Year Award and CEO of City Winery, Michael Dorf.

So sad to mark the passing of Sweet Pea Atkinson, whose backup vocals on all my GRAMMY-winning albums and so many others' added so much grit and soul. He was a real character--as delightful as he was sweet under that gruff exterior, and truly and one of the greatest soul singers I've ever heard. We will miss him dearly and send our condolences to his family. #ripsweetpea ... See MoreSee Less
