The Delightful Dick Van Dyke is Being Honored

Hi, it’s Leslie Harris, and I’m pretty excited about the Kennedy Center Honors this year.

Every year, the Kennedy center recognizes people in the arts. The arts have never been more important as they have been this past year. Actors, musicians and other artists have kept our collective sanity during this very difficult year.

Honorees this year include some big names like Garth Brooks, Debbie Allen, Joan Baez, and the always delightful 95-year-old Dick Van Dyke, as well as violinist Midori. Dick Van Dyke was quoted as saying,

“I can’t be more thrilled. How I got here I don’t know and I’m not going to ask.”

(Have I mentioned how much I love him?)

The ceremony itself took place outside in may, and will be televised tomorrow night, Sunday June 6th at 7:00 p.m. Central time on CBS
