Brian Wilson, legendary mastermind of the Beach Boys and now an acclaimed solo artist, wore a piece from Hearts On Fire’s Couture collection during the MusiCares Gala that honored him as Man of the Year. Wilson won a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for “Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow” from his critically hailed SMiLE CD.
Wilson wore the Hearts On Fire’s Aspiration pin to raise awareness for the tsunami relief effort. The tsunami relief effort is close to Wilson’s heart, as he lost a member of his band during the massive natural disaster.
MusiCares selected Wilson for his accomplishments as a songwriter as well as for his philanthropic efforts benefiting research to cure cancer.
