Steve Jobs's passion for music was honoured at the 2012 Grammy Award. The posthumous Trustees Award was in honour of his creation of Apple iTunes.

"Accepting this award means so much to me because music meant so much to him," said Eddy Cue, senior vice president of Internet software and services at Apple. "He told us that music shaped his life. It made him who he was. Everyone who knows Steve knows the profound impact that artists like Bob Dylan and the Beatles had on him."

IBN Live reports that the Jobs was chosen because he "transformed the way we consume music, TV, movies, and books."

Grammy organisers said he was a "creative visionary" and listed the iPod, iPhone and iPad as ways in which he revolutionised the consumption of music.

In a moving statement on Grammy.com, Yo-Yo Ma, cellist, said "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."

Steve Jobs asked Yo-Yo Ma to play at his funeral, which he did, and had previously asked him to play at his wedding.
