Steve Jobs has been given a Grammy Award for his contribution to the music industry.
The Award was announced this week by The Recording Academy, the organisation responsible for handing out Grammys.
“As former CEO and co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs helped create products and technology that transformed the way we consume music, TV, movies, and books. A creative visionary, Jobs’ innovations such as the iPod and its counterpart, the online iTunes store, revolutionized the industry and how music was distributed and purchased,” a statement on the Grammy website reads.
