Kennedy Center Honorees Announced

The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts has announced this year's recipients of the prestigious and fancy Kennedy Center Honors: opera singer Martina Arroyo; musicians Herbie Hancock, Billy Joel, and Carlos Santana; and actress Shirley MacLaine will all be recognized for their lifetime contributions to American culture. But who will admiringly and humorously fête them at the ceremony in December? That is the real question, Kennedy Center.
