On Wednesday, May 9, Burt Bacharach and Hal David were honored with the presentation of the 2012 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. The presentation was made to Mr. Bacharach and Mr. David’s wife, Eunice, by President Obama.
A star-studded line-up of international artists performed as part of the event. The roster included Sheryl Crow, Michael Feinstein, Diana Krall, Lyle Lovett, Mike Myers, Rumer, Arturo Sandoval, Sheléa and Stevie Wonder.
Jordan Kitt’s Music was honored and privileged to be asked to provide a Yamaha S6 Mark IV Disklavier Pro for this very special occasion in the musical life of our nation. The picture shows Stevie Wonder playing this piano.
