This December, the Kennedy Center will hold its 40th Annual Honors Ceremony. The yearly tradition, covered intensely by press around the country, confers awards upon top performers in the entertainment industry, with prizes for a wide array of achievements in areas ranging from music to television to dance. This year’s honorees include dancer/choreographer Carmen de Lavallade, musician Gloria Estefan, legendary singer Lionel Richie, hip-hop performer LL Cool J, and television producer and writer Norman Lear. While the event isn’t open to the public, non-ticket holders will have the opportunity to watch the broadcast on television in late December, making this an event to remember.
