The 43rd annual Kennedy Center Honors broadcast is set to air Sunday, and Billboard wants to know: Which musician do you think deserves to receive the honors next?
At Sunday’s ceremony, Garth Brooks, Joan Baez, violinist Midori, Dick Van Dyke and Debbie Allen will be honored. The Kennedy Center Honors cover all aspects of arts and entertainment in addition to music, and there’s still a bevy of legendary groups and solo performers who are overdue to be recognized.
Swedish pop group ABBA, British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac, and American hip-hop group Run-D.M.C. are among the ensembles who could be up next. Godmother of Soul Patti LaBelle and Empress of Soul Gladys Knight, who competed in a Verzuz battle in September, are also worthy, as well as their “Superwoman” collaborator Dionne Warwick.
