Jon Bon Jovi receives honorary title of Doctor of Music

Jon Bon Jovi received an honorary Doctor of Music degree from the University of Pennsylvania. The Asbury Park Press reports that the Bon Jovi leader attended a ceremony at Franklin Field, Philadelphia, last Monday, the 20th, where he received the award.


Recognizing his new title, Bon Jovi said on the Instagram: “It’s better to be a doctor than to need a doctor. Thank you University of Pennsylvania and congratulations to all the trainees.”

Announcing his decision to grant the title to the vocalist, the university pointed to his many accomplishments, including his charity work with the Jon Bon Jovi Alma Foundation, which he supports in combating poverty and homelessness.

JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank and Toms River, New Jersey – the last of which was opened in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy – have served more than 90,000 meals, where volunteers prepare the table, and who eats there helps the feeding the most needy of each community, from neighbors, seniors or families in need.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
