From Kelly Clarkson to Gladys Knight, here are the 10 best musical moments from this year’s Kennedy Center Honors
Here are the 10 best musical moments from this year’s Kennedy Center Honors.
and Mary Chapin Carpenter paid tribute to Baezby performing three songs long associated with the singer, including the civil rights anthem “We Shall Overcome” (fromJoan Baez in Concert, Part 2, 1963). Harris and Carpenter also performed the title song (which Baez wrote) from her 1975 album
Diamonds & Rustand Steve Earle’s “God Is God” (the opening track fromDay After Tomorrow, 2008). Harris is overdue to be a Kennedy Center Honoree. In a rarity, the Baez segment did not include her biggest hit, a 1971 cover version of Robbie Robertson’s “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”
2.Kelly Clarksonperformed “The Dance,”the standout ballad from Brooks’ 1989 debut album. It’s a given, after a couple of years of “Kellyoke” segments, that Clarkson can sing anything. But she can really soar when she tackles a superb song like this Tony Arata ballad. The first minute or so of her performance was a cappella, before a pianist joined to provide still-spare accompaniment. She’s good. headtopics.com
1.Gladys Knightclosed the show by performing “We Shall Be Free,”which Brooks co-wrote with Stephanie Davis and released in 1992, when its live-and-let-live stance regarding gay rights was considered much more controversial than it is today. Knight excelled on the song. She has long bridged the gap between soul and country, having a hit with Kris Kristofferson’s “Help Me Make It Through the Night” in 1972 and teaming with Vince Gill on the opening track on the
Rhythm, Country & Bluesalbum in 1994. Memo to the Kennedy Center Honors selection committee: Knight, a star since 1961, really deserves to be an honoree. They don't call her the Empress of Soul for nothing.The next Kennedy Center Honors will presumably be staged, and air, in December as the show returns to its normal schedule. (This show was the one that would normally have aired in December 2020.)
At the end of the show,Gloria Estefan, a 2017 honoree who was hosting for the second time, said that next time they would probably be back in the Kennedy Center Opera House. The producers might want to think twice about that. As Sheryl Crow, another likely future honoree, once sang, “A Change Would Do You Good.”Read more: billboard »

AngelofEssence7 This was a great show. Kelly Clarkson knocked it out of the ballpark with Dance. Garth Brooks is exceptional and I saw him in Boston when he just started & he was hopping all over the stage. Gladys Knight was AWESOME!!!
