ELAC Celebrates MusiCares’ “2022 Person of the Year,” Joni Mitchell

On April 1st, the Recording Academy’s MusiCares celebrated Joni Mitchell’s creative accomplishments and philanthropic work, awarding her the title of 2022 Person of the Year. At ELAC, our goal is to bring people together in a journey through The Life of Sound; that’s why we’re proud to donate a one-of-a-kind Miracord 80 turntable for the Recording Academy’s MusiCares auction — to be enjoyed with the Joni Mitchell signed vinyl boxset (MusiCares Person of the Year 2022).
“MusiCares ongoing support for music people is truly inspiring, and ELAC is excited to be part of the event celebrating Joni Mitchell as Person of the Year this April. Joni is one of music’s greatest songwriters and musicians, and countless fans have grown up listing to her songs on a turntable. To be associated with this great cause is just a small way for us to share our Life of Sound.”
—Joe Riggi, President – ELAC Americas

One-of-a-kind Miracord 80 for the 2022 MusiCares Auction
The event was held a day before the 64th Grammys in Las Vegas and raised funds for the many crucial programs and relief efforts provided by MusiCares, including their immeasurable support in health, financial, and rehabilitation resources for the music community. They help the humans behind music… because music gives so much to the world.
The star-studded attendees enjoyed performances from many GRAMMY-winning and-nominated artists such as Beck, Brandi Carlile, Cyndi Lauper, Billy Porter, Jon Batiste, Pentatonix, Leon Bridges, Lauren Daigle, Sara Bareilles, Chaka Khan, St. Vincent, Mickey Guyton and more.

—Laura Segura, Executive Director, MusiCares
