Rubenstein. 

The 2013 Kennedy Center Honors went to: opera queen Martina Arroyo, musician Herbie Hancock, Billy Joel, actress Shirley MacLaine and last but not least, the Mexican artist Carlos Santana.  The occasion was the 36th yearly festival of the arts. These fantastic five were not only the best of the best in their respective fields, but they made the cultural landscape of America richer by their individual contributions. 

Martina Arroyo made opera a household world with her special vocal skills. And Herbie Hancock virtually revolutionized jazz and the sphere of improvised music. As for Billy Joel, he created pop music that was really entertaining and will continue to entertain generations of Americans

Meanwhile, Shirley MacLaine has made movies that bedazzle the audiences and she has been in the industry for 60 years. "The remarkable breadth and range of Shirley MacLaine's acting has left an indelible impression over a nearly 60-year career on stage and screen," added Rubenstein.
