Grant was recently announced as one of the recipients of the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors, along with U2, Gladys Knight, George Clooney, and composer and conductor Tania León.
“Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine ever receiving this prestigious Kennedy Center Honor,” Grant says of the accolade. “Through the years I’ve watched so many of my heroes serenaded by colleagues and fellow artists, always moved by the ability of music and film to bring us together and to see the best in each other. I cannot wait to celebrate with my fellow honorees, friends and family. Thank you for widening the circle to include all of us.”
