Bon Jovi humanitarian work honoured

Jon Bon Jovi is to be honoured for using his rock star success to do good work.

The Marian Anderson Award is given in Philadelphia to "critically acclaimed artists who have impacted society in a positive way".

In announcing the recipient, organisers said rocker Jon had used his musical success to support groups working to end homelessness and hunger.

The music star will accept the 25,000 dollar award on November 18 at the city's Kimmel Centre for the Performing Arts.

Anderson was a celebrated contralto opera singer and Philadelphia native who in 1955 became the first black soloist at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. She died in 1993, aged 96.

Previous winners include actor James Earl Jones, poet Maya Angelou and actress Dame Elizabeth Taylor.
