Chances are you’ve heard of famous actors and artists being honored at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. It’s a huge honor.
Guess who’s being honored this year?
George Clooney, because of his “unique brand of earnest charisma and his complete embodiment of a character has led us to root for him every time.”
U2, because they “won over America and the world long ago with their iconic anthems, potent lyrics and powerful messages of social justice and global citizenship.”
Amy Grant!!! She is being recognized as the first artist to bring Christian music to the “forefront of American Culture.” It’s the first time any artist who does Christian Music has ever been honored.
The official ceremony takes play early in December and will be on TV sometime after that.
