Kennedy Honors – The celebration show.
Washington celebrated singer Dionne Warwick, comedian Billy Crystal, Bee Gees member Barry Gibb, rapper and actress Queen Latifah, and opera star Renée Fleming on Sunday at the Kennedy Center Honors, the top U.S. honor for achievements in the arts.
The show kicked off with a tribute to Warwick, 82, a pop music star since the 1960s who has sold more than 100 million records and is known for hits such as “I’ll Never Love This Way Again” and “That’s What Friends Are For,” a 1985 song she recorded with Gladys Knight, Elton John and Stevie Wonder to raise awareness about AIDS.
The show concluded with a celebration of Gibb, 77, a singer and songwriter who performed with his brothers Robin and Maurice in the Bee Gees, a group that sold more than 220 million records. He has won nine Grammy Awards and, as part of the trio, is known for songs such as “Stayin’ Alive” and “How Deep Is Your Love.”
Little Big Town performed “Lonely Days,” Michael Bublé sang “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart,” and Broadway star Ben Platt did a rendition of “Nights on Broadway.” (The show, which was recorded, will be broadcast by U.S. television network CBS on Dec. 27)
