Mayer Recieves Award!

John Mayer recently canceled his tour due to recurrent throat problems, but that won’t stop him from

traveling to Washington, D.C. next month to accept a prestigious award for his work in the music community.

John will be honored during the annual Grammys on the Hill event, a two-day affair during which music industry advocates meet with lawmakers to promote pro-music policies.  He, along with U.S. Democratic Representative Howard Berman of California, will attend the April 25 ceremony, where they will be honored for their efforts to improve the nation’s music community and arts education.

Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow said he considers John to be “an enormous talent… (and) active philanthropist in arts and education.”

A spokesperson for the event confirmed to ABC News Radio that despite his vocal issues, John will speak at the ceremony, but he won’t sing.  However, another, as-yet-unnamed musician will be present at the event to perform in John’s honor, so it’s quite possible that he will at least play the guitar.
