Every year, the Kennedy Center honors 5 people whose careers in the arts have made a lifelong contribution to our American culture.
Those honored have enriched us with their work in theater, film, television, music, dance, literature, and more. A gala event at the
Kennedy Center in Washington, DC celebrates each honoree with a short film summarizing his/her life and career, followed by a live
tribute performance. In 2008, the honorees were Morgan Freeman (Film and TV), Pete Townshend & Roger Daltrey (Popular Music), George
Jones (Country Music), Twyla Tharp (Dance), and Barbra Streisand (Theater, Film, Popular Music). A house band supports the performers,
but I don't know the musicians involved in the house band.
The audio from the short films include copyrighted content, and are not included here. Twyla Tharp's tribute is not included due to
her field being a visual art. Morgan Freeman has been a lover and supporter of the Blues for decades, including ownership of a Blues
club in Mississippi, and his tribute included performances from some of the legends of the Blues. Several of today's great vocalists
honored Pete & Roger, while George Jones was saluted by some of Country Music's greats, and Streisand's tribute included vocals from
the fields of Pop, R & B, and Broadway.
