Apple Exec Eddy Cue Accepts Special Grammy For Steve Jobs [Video]



Apple VP and iCloud guru Eddy Cue recently accepted a Special Merit GRAMMY Award for the late Steve Jobs. Cue gave an acceptance speech on behalf of Apple and the Jobs family, saying that “Steve was focused on bringing music to everyone in innovative ways.” Cue worked with Jobs closely for 15 years.

The GRAMMY was awarded to Jobs for his contributions to music with the iPod and iTunes Store.

The Recording Academy last honored Apple with a Technical GRAMMY Award in 2002. As MacRumors notes, the 16-time GRAMMY winner and cellist YoYo Ma has also payed tribute to Jobs on the GRAMMY website:

Steve was ever eager to share the latest “one more thing.” I will never forget how he pulled out a prototype of the iPhone for me and the astonished members of the Silk Road Ensemble at UC Berkeley, or the conversation about intuition versus intelligence and the importance of stimulating disciplined imagination in our students to ensure an innovative workforce. His life’s work was a reflection of his father Paul’s lesson: “When you make something, make sure the back is as beautiful as the front, even if nobody sees it.”
