This year, they will honor Roger Daltrey, CBE, of The Who, as well as rapper LL Cool J. The We Are Family Foundation (WAFF) is a non-profit organization that was founded by Grammy-winning musician and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Nile Rodgers. It is dedicated to the vision of a global family.
Founder Nile Rodgers praised both LL Cool J and Roger Daltrey for their dedication to organization that benefit people overall, especially the youth. "These two incredibly talented individuals are selflessly dedicated to helping others," Rodgers said.
Roger Daltrey, CBE, is a Kennedy Center Honoree and Grammy-winning artist. Daltrey is the lead singer of the rock band The Who, and he will receive "The Mattie J.T. Stepanek Peacemaker Award" next month.
