Lady Gaga was honored on Monday afternoon with the Jane Ortner Artist Award at the Grammy Museum's Jane Ortner Education Award Luncheon for demonstrating passion and dedication to education through the arts.
Introduced by Neil Portrow, president of National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, Gaga accepted her award and said: "It's my love of learning music and playing music that keeps me here." She then told the audience to help other people to have genuine love for music, saying, "I think it's so great for us all to leave this afternoon with an inner sense of inspiration to help other people feel a genuine authentic love for music that is beyond becoming famous, beyond making money, beyond becoming a star, beyond looking like you have it all."
Lady Gaga didn't just accept an award, she also performed at the event. Teaming up with Brian Newman and his band, Gaga sang a set of jazz classics that includes "New York, New York", "Call Me Irresponsible", and "La Vie en Rose".
