The Eagles, Carole King, George Lucas.
These are names you don’t often see paired together, but they were three of the artists announced as recipients of this year’s Kennedy Center Honors. The award is meant to celebrate an individual’s lifetime artistic achievements. Rita Moreno, Seiji Ozawa, and Cicely Tyson will also be honored.
Now in its 38th year, the annual Honors Gala is a veritable who’s who of arts and culture, with honorees being saluted by leading entertainers from around the country. This year’s celebration will be held on Sunday, December 6th, and will be produced by Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss. The celebration will then air on CBS on December 29th.
