City of Hope’s Music, Film and Entertainment Industry group will honor Eddy Cue, senior vice president of Apple’s Internet Software and Services, with its 2014 Spirit of Life® Award. The award is City of Hope’s highest honor, and each year recognizes an individual whose work has fundamentally impacted the music, film and entertainment industries. Cue will be the first honoree from the technology sector, an acknowledgment of the exciting ways technology and entertainment now intersect to enhance the consumer experience.

The award will be presented at a gala dinner in Los Angeles on Oct. 23.

"We couldn’t be more excited to be recognizing Eddy Cue with City of Hope’s highest honor," said Jason Morey, president of City of Hope’s Music, Film and Entertainment Industry Group. "City of Hope and Apple are both renowned for their passionate embrace of innovation and change. Eddy embodies that same passion. He has played a hugely important role for Apple as it has revolutionized the way consumers enjoy everything from music to films to TV to books to apps. He is an extraordinarily worthy honoree."

City of Hope, too, is determined to change the future. As a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases, City of Hope is focused on rapidly transforming scientific discoveries into better treatments and prevention strategies. Its mission is to shorten the time from new research idea to new medical treatment.

"I'm truly honored to be this year's recipient of the Spirit of Life Award. The research that City of Hope does impacts the lives of millions and their work personally means a lot to me," said Eddy Cue. "City of Hope uses the latest research and technology to fight cancer and other catastrophic diseases. I hope that everyone who can, gives what they can, to City of Hope so they can continue to fight the battle against cancer."

Past honorees of City of Hope’s Music, Film and Entertainment Industry Spirit of Life Award include CAA’s Head of Music Rob Light, Clear Channel Chairman and CEO Bob Pittman, Azoff MSG Entertainment Chairman and CEO Irving Azoff, Sony Music’s Clive Davis, NARAS President and CEO Neil Portnow, MTV President Van Toffler, former Universal Music Group chairman and CEO, now Sony Music Chairman and CEO Doug Morris, former Warner music Group Chairman and CEO Edgar Bronfman, Quincy Jones and many others.

Cue is a 25-year Apple veteran who began his career with the company as a manager of software engineering and customer support teams. He played a key role in the creation of the Apple online store in 1998, the iTunes Store in 2003 and the App Store in 2008. In 2010, Fast Company ranked Cue No. 2 on its annual list of “Most Creative People.”

The Music, Film and Entertainment Industry Group of City of Hope is one of many industry groups whose volunteer base has been inspired by the research institution’s commitment to innovative medical research and compassionate patient care. In its 38-year history, the group has raised more than $100 million for City of Hope and has honored some of the most important figures from the music and entertainment industry.

It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
