Antonio Carlos Jobim, who co-wrote the famous song “Girl From Ipanema” will be awarded a posthumous Grammy for helping share Bossa Nova with the world.

The Brazilian arranger, singer and pianist/guitarist was pivotal in the creation of the Brazilian Bossa Nova as well as in exporting the sound to the rest of the world.

In 1995, Jobim won a posthumous Best Latin Jazz Performance Grammy for his album ‘Antonio Brasileiro’.

Along with Jobim, the late Apple CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs will be presented with a special Grammy award for creating products and technology that transformed the way we consume music, TV, movies and books. Diana Ross, whom has never won a Grammy, will be presented the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Other Lifetime Achievement recipients for the year include the Allman Brothers Band, Glen Campbell, George Jones, the Memphis Horns, and the late Gil Scott-Heron
