Screen star Robert Redford will be one among some others to receive Kennedy Center honors this winter. "We honor five extraordinary American artists whose unique and abundant contributions to our culture have transformed our lives," said Stephen A. Schwarzman, chairman of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
As for the rest four slated to hand the honor are singers Tony Bennett and Tina Turner, actress Julie Harris and ballerina-teacher Suzanne Farrell. All those recipients of the 28th annual honors will be recognized at a gala performance at the Kennedy Center on Dec. 4, to be attended by President Bush and first lady Laura Bush. The gala, hosted by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, would later on in December this year broadcast by CBS.
