[ # ] The Kennedy Center honors Dick Van Dyke, Debbie Allen and Garth Brooks
January 13th, 2021 under Dick Van Dyke, Garth Brooks

CBS


CBS and the Kennedy Center announced who they will be honoring this year. The five artists are Debbie Allen, Joan Baez, Garth Brooks, Midori, and Dick Van Dyke.

Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein explained their decision. “Debbie Allen moves seamlessly between artistic disciplines and is a cultural ambassador for all while having a monumental impact on dancers of color everywhere; folk icon Joan Baez breathed new life into the genre and powered rock music’s turn toward social and political consciousness; as one of the world’s best-selling music artists, Garth Brooks heightened country music’s profile like no other singer before him; with an international presence for over 35 years, violinist Midori combines graceful precision and expression for performances building connections between art and the human experience; with a charm that has made him one of the most cherished performers in show business history, Dick Van Dyke has brought us beloved film, stage, and TV characters adored by generations of fans, for more than seven decades.”

The two-hour special is slated to air June 6th on CBS. How the event will take place will depend on where we are in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. We need to protect Dick Van Dyke, Joan Baez, and Debbie Allen from COVID-19. They are obviously national treasures, or they would not be being honored.
