George Clooney, U2, Gladys Knight Among Next Kennedy Center Honorees

From a Washington Post story by Peggy McGlone headlined “George Clooney, U2, Gladys Knight among next Kennedy Center honorees”:

The Irish rock group U2, actor-filmmaker George Clooney, singers Gladys Knight and Amy Grant, and composer-conductor Tania León will be saluted for their achievements in the arts at the 45th annual Kennedy Center Honors Dec. 4 at the national arts center.

The Sunday night performance is the centerpiece of a weekend that includes a private dinner when the distinctive rainbow medals are presented, and a fundraising gala for thousands following the Opera House show. The production — with its top-secret lineup of guests — will be broadcast later on CBS.
