Earlier today The Recording Academy announced BTS will perform at MusiCares’ “Music on a Mission” virtual concert. The septet will joins a lineup that features new performances from H.E.R., John Legend, Haim and Jhene Aiko. The online event will also air special footage from the MusiCares vault, which includes songs from Bruce Springsteen, Usher, Stevie Nicks and the late Tom Petty.
The virtual concert will take place on March 12, just ahead of the Grammys ceremony on March 14. It is typically a Person of the Year concert, but will instead serve as a virtual fundraiser to honor the COVID-19- affected music community. Tickets are $25 and all proceeds will go to those hardest hit by the pandemic.
“It is our responsibility to support music people through this pandemic and beyond,” MusiCares executive director Laura Segura said.
Later that week BTS will compete for Grammy’s best pop duo/group performance award for their first all-English song, “Dynamite,” off of 2020 album “BE.”
