GARY CLARK JR. PERFORMANCE AT 35TH ANNUAL KENNEDY CENTER HONORS TO BE BROADCAST AS A TWO-HOUR PRIMETIME SPECIAL ON CBS DECEMBER 26TH AT 9 PM (ET/PT)

 

EVENT HONORING BUDDY GUY, DUSTIN HOFFMAN, DAVID LETTERMAN, LED ZEPPELIN AND NATALIA MAKAROVA ATTENDED BY THE PRESIDENT AND MRS. OBAMA

 

December 10, 2012 – (Burbank, CA) – Rock and soul phenomenon Gary Clark Jr. performed as part of the 35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C.  The star-studded event filmed on Dec 2nd was attended by President Obama and his wife Michelle and this year’s honorees Buddy Guy, Dustin Hoffman, David Letterman, Natalia Makarova and Led Zeppelin.

 

The annual Honors Gala has become the highlight of the Washington cultural year, and its broadcast on CBS is a high point of the television season. The celebration on the Kennedy Center Opera House stage will air as a two-hour primetime special on Wednesday, December 26 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT).

 

Clark has received across-the-board critical acclaim for his debut album for Warner Bros. RecordsBlak And Blu, while its first single “Ain’t Messin ‘Round,” is climbing the charts. The media continues their love affair with Clark:

 

“One hell of a mean guitar tone, playing solos that claw and scream their stories with ornery spender, but Clark won’t be genre-bound.” – Rolling Stone

 

“Gary Clark Jr. lives up to the hype. Anyone who believes that rock ‘n’ roll is dead would have gotten a defibrillator shock at Clark’s (W. Hollywood) Troubadour show….the idea that an inspired guitar, bass and drums combo on a small stage can still be more overpowering live than pummeling dance beats and a hundred-foot LED wall. Gary Clark Jr. is a shaman.”  — Los Angeles Times

 

In other recent news, Clark has been named VH1’s “You Oughta Know” Artist of The Month (November), recently performed on Good Morning America and The Late Show With David Letterman,and taped an appearance on Austin City Limits, which will air in early 2013.
