Watch President Joe Biden Give National Medal of Arts to Gladys Knight, Bruce Springsteen, Amy Tan, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, More
Twenty three deserving Americans received Presidential Medals of Honor yesterday from Joe Biden.
A lot of press was given to Bruce Springsteen, who we all love and Biden does, too.
But I was most excited about Gladys Knight, whom Biden dubbed “The Empress of Soul,” getting her medal. No one deserves it more. I love the fact that Gladys is finally getting incredible recognition. She just received a Kennedy Center Award.
Some of the others in yesterday’s group included journalist Walter Isaacson, “Just Mercy” writer Bryan Stevenson, actress Julia Louis Dreyfus, novelist Amy Tan, and writer Mindy Kaling.
