Apple's Eddy Cue accepts Special Merit Grammy for contributions to the music industry on behalf of Steve Jobs

Remembering Steve Jobs

Apple senior vice president of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue accepted the Recording Academy Special Merit Grammy for contributions to the music industry on behalf of his late boss, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. The Trustees Award, presented yesterday, was in recognition for Jobs' accomplishments including the iPod and iTunes music store.

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.

The Recording Academy has also published a tribute to Steve Jobs by Yo-Yo Ma, a 16 time Grammy award winner and personal friend of Jobs.

Music was always been a passion of Jobs' and a theme in most Apple products and events. With each new release of an iPhone or iPod, Jobs aimed to make music more easily accessible and enjoyable than ever before. Visit the link below to watch a video of Eddy Cue accepting the award.
