21 August 2013 10:35 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Recipients for the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors will be announced shortly after Labor Day. Which famous entertainers are most likely to be included in this annual celebration of the arts? The five chosen will be celebrated at the White House and with a special concert at the Kennedy Center in early December. The honorees are always an eclectic group covering a variety of disciplines, including film, television, popular music, theatre, dance, and/or the fine arts. Last year, various advocacy groups pointed out that only two Hispanics -- Placido Domingo (2000) and Chita Rivera (2002) -- numbered among the 185 people feted to date. The Kennedy Centers Honors is expanding the selection process by welcoming suggestions from the public.

The Kennedy Centers Honors is expanding the selection process by welcoming suggestions from the public. Last year, various advocacy groups pointed out that only two Hispanics -- Placido Domingo (2000) and Chita Rivera (2002) -- numbered among the 185 people feted to date.  Rivera is to be part of a new committee that will winnow down the list of potential recipients from 20 to 10. Joining her are 2011 honoree Yo Yo Ma; opera singer Harolyn Blackwell and ballet dancer Damian Woetzel who sit on the Artist Committee; and board members Cappy McGarr and Elaine Wynn.

Kennedy Center May Start Honoring More Latinos

16 May 2013 2:01 PM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Washington — The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts has a new process to select artists who receive one of the nation's top arts prizes, the Kennedy Center Honors, after an outside group last year said Latinos have been largely excluded.

Under the revised process, the Kennedy Center will begin seeking recommendations from the public for the first time in the award's 35-year history. Recommendations can be submitted online beginning Thursday. The center will also seek more recommendations from a committee of artists.

To narrow the roster of potential honorees, the center is forming a new Special Honors Committee. Former honorees Chita Rivera and Yo-Yo Ma will serve on the panel, along with opera singer Harolyn Blackwell, dancer Damian Woetzel and two center board members, Elaine Wynn and Cappy McGarr. From there, the Kennedy Center chairman, president and award producers will create slates of potential honorees to balance the selections across artistic disciplines, »
