U2, Amy Grant highlight this year's Kennedy Center honors

U2 were in Washington, D.C. last Sunday night where they were among this year's Kennedy Center honorees.

President Biden welcomed the band to the White House along with this year’s other honorees -- actor George Clooney, singers Amy Grant and Gladys Knight, and composer Tania Leon. President Biden said, "U2 has spoken and sung about the unspeakable costs of hate and anger and division. The pain, the suffering, the denial of freedom, the senseless loss of life and the inhumanity we inflict on one another as nations, as people, and in our own lives. All flowing from division, that for all of us, its physical manifestations lie first and foremost in our hearts."

The celebration moved over to the Kennedy Center, where Eddie Vedder paid tribute to U2 by performing “Elevation” and “One,” and Sean Penn spoke about the band’s philanthropy efforts.

Comedic actor Sacha Baron Cohen, who was speaking in the voice of his fictional Kazakh journalist character Borat, said, “Please remove your wretched album (2014's Songs of Innocence) from my iPhone 6. Your band fight oppressions from around the world. Stop it!”

He was followed by Ukrainian singer-songwriter Jamala, Hozier and Brandi Carlile, who performed “Walk On.”

Sheryl Crow, and the Highwomen (Brandi Carlile, Natalie HembyMaren Morris and Amanda Shires) paid tribute to  Amy Grant.

The Kennedy Center Honors will air on CBS on December 28th at 7pm (Central).
