Black Eyed Peas artist will.i.am has announced he is a new director of the Grammy Foundation.

“Now in their 21st year, both MusiCares and the GRAMMY Foundation are vibrant and mature nonprofit organizations,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Grammy Foundation and MusiCares. “Our Board members reflect this core strength, and we look to them for creativity and stewardship as we continue our growth. The talent and vision of our Board members is truly inspiring, and we are very fortunate to have highly respected individuals working with us.”

The Grammy Foundation “was established in 1989 to cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to American culture — from the artistic and technical legends of the past to the still unimagined musical breakthroughs of future generations of music professionals. The Foundation accomplishes this mission through programs and activities that engage the music industry and cultural community as well as the general public. The Foundation works in partnership year-round with The Recording Academy to bring national attention to important issues such as the value and impact of music and arts education and the urgency of preserving our rich cultural heritage.”
