Bonnie Raitt—an American blues singer, guitarist and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer—won Song of the Year at the 65th Grammy Awards for her song, “Just Like That.” The song was inspired by her friend and fellow musician, John Prine, who died in 2020 following a battle with COVID-19.
At 73, Bonnie Raitt is a ten-time Grammy winner and her recent Song of the Year win spotlights the life-changing impact of eye, organ and tissue donation.
“I was so inspired for this song by the incredible story of the love, and the grace, and the generosity of someone that donates their beloved’s organs to help another person live,” Raitt said in her acceptance speech.
By registering your decision to become an eye, organ and tissue donor, you are helping to save lives and give hope to the more than 100,000 people in the United States currently waiting for lifesaving organ transplants. Thousands more are in need of life-changing tissue or corneal transplants to restore their health and independence.
