Music Legend Quincy Jones to Receive The Visionary Award

HOLLYWOOD, CA: The Los Angeles Press Club is proud to announce that music legend Quincy Jones will accept the Visionary Award at a gala celebration on November 23 at the Biltmore Hotel, downtown Los Angeles.

The Visionary Award was instituted two years ago to honor an individual within the Entertainment Industry who uses their high-profile status to make the world a better place and to spread information about issues of freedom and importance.  

Quincy Jones pioneered the model of using celebrity to raise money and awareness for a cause with “We Are the World.”  The song remains the best-selling single of all-time, and raised more than $63 Million for Ethiopian famine relief.  More importantly, however, it shined a spotlight on the Ethiopian drought and U.S. Government responded with over $800 million in aid.

“Mr. Jones has not only touched the lives of countless artists and entertainers in music, television and film, but he has touched the lives of countless strangers through his tireless and continuing humanitarian efforts,” says Press Club President Robert Kovacik. read more...
