THE KENNEDY CENTER HONORS

This past weekend marked the 31st Annual John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts celebration in Washington, DC. Among the recipients of the 31st Annual Kennedy Center Honorees is Idina’s lifelong idol, Barbra Streisand.

Idina and Taye attended this star-studded 2-day, high-profile event along with an audience that included fellow Honorees Morgan Freeman, George Jones, Twyla Tharp, and Pete Townshend & Roger Daltrey, who were seated with President & Mrs. Bush, along with several other political dignitaries and artists from around the world.

Idina was invited to be a part of the celebration on behalf of Barbra Streisand’s contribution to the performing arts. She sang one of Barbra’s most classic songs at the event – “Don’t Rain On My Parade” from Funny Girl. The Washington Post is even hailing her performance as the highlight of the evening!
