(hennemusic) Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler will be honored with the 2016 Humanitarian Award by The Hospitality Committee for United Nations Delegations at the Ambassadors' Ball on December 3 in New York.

The honor is in recognition of the Tyler's philanthropic partnership with Youth Villages through Janie's Fund, which he launched in 2015 to give his voice to vulnerable girls who have experienced the trauma of abuse and neglect and are being helped by Youth Villages.

"As a father to three daughters, a son, and, now a grandfather, it broke my heart to learn that each year in America alone 700,000 children are victims of serious abuse or neglect and 68,000 will be sexually abused," says Tyler. "All abuse is wrong - verbal, physical, sexual, emotional. We need to have better ways as parents to help our children and support them. Way too many kids are experiencing abuse, and we want to change that. Enough is enough." Read more here.
