WASHINGTON — The Latest on the Kennedy Center Honors program (all times local):
Cher says she never thought she’d be walking the red carpet to receive a lifetime artistic achievement award at the Kennedy Center Honors.
The veteran pop music icon and Oscar winner said Sunday night at Washington’s Kennedy Center that she always tried to focus on the music and her fans over any career honors.
She says, “You do things for the art and if the awards come, that’s gravy.”
The 72-year-old says she was genuinely surprised to receive the award.
