Amy Grant was included in this year’s 45th class of Kennedy Center Honorees held at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. alongside U2, George Clooney, Tania León, and Gladys Knight.

Grant accepted her honor last weekend during the taping of the annual broadcast and a weekend of events filled with family and long-time friends. She recently posted a video recap on her socials, commenting:

“I’m still processing the whirlwind weekend at the Kennedy Center Honors. Somewhere in the telling of each of our stories and accomplishments, with laughter and tenderness, through the lens of friendship and connection, we all experienced the unifying impact of the ARTS in its many forms. Hats off to the Kennedy Center team for curating such a spectacular event that created a lifetime of memories.”

The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts selected the 45th Honorees for lifetime artistic achievements: acclaimed actor and filmmaker George Clooney; contemporary Christian and pop singer-songwriter Amy Grant; legendary singer of soul, Gospel, R&B, and pop Gladys Knight; Cuban-born American composer, conductor, and educator Tania León; and iconic Irish rock band U2, comprised of band members Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr. The event took place Sunday, December 4th in the Kennedy Center Opera House, and will be televised Wednesday, December 28th at 8/7c on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.

Watch Amy this Monday, December 12th on CBS Mornings as she will be the first of the Kennedy Center Honors profiles. Grant’s segment, an in depth interview with Vlad Duthiers, is among the five Honor profiles on the program. CBS Mornings airs between 7-9am each weekday.
