41st Annual Kennedy Center Honors Preview
An event that celebrates the lifetime accomplishments of artists and their contributions to American culture, this is the 41st annual Kennedy Center Honors since its inaugural celebration in 1978.
“The Kennedy Center Honors recognizes exceptional artists who have made enduring and indelible marks on our culture,” said Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein.
Honorees at the 2018 awards include singer Cher, country singer Reba McEntire, jazz saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter and composer Philip Glass.
“The Kennedy Center Honors has always been a way to celebrate those artists who have made a difference in our lives and our culture. Cher has always been a pioneer—a woman who pushed boundaries, set her own rules, and dared to try everything,” said David Geffen. “She’s a true hero, and she has changed millions of lives for the better.”
The co-creators of the hit musical “Hamilton”-Lin-Manuel Miranda, Thomas Kail, Andy Blankenbuehler and Alex Lacamoire–will also be honored.
“The world looks to America for its creative instincts and artistic courage,” said Kennedy Center President Deborah F. Rutter. “This year’s slate of Honorees represents the pinnacle of our nation’s originality and the rich mosaic of diverse perspectives and art forms that has come to define who we are as a people.”
Gloria Estefan, who was an honoree at last year’s show, will host.
Though it reportedly won’t make it into the television broadcast, Estefan paid tribute to the late Geore H.W. Bush, saying that he “graciously attended this event many times during his administration, laughing, applauding, singing along, and even shedding a tear from right up there in that presidential box.”
Donald Trump won’t attend, making him the first president in history to miss this show twice.
