At the 2022 Kennedy Center Honors earlier this month, George Clooney, Gladys Knight, U2, Tania León, and Amy Grant were honored.

Ahead of the ceremony, President Joe Biden welcomed the honorees to the White House. There, he said, "Tonight, we celebrate a truly exceptional, and this is not exaggeration, a truly exceptional group of artists—group of artists who embody the very spirit of 'we the people.' This year’s Kennedy Center honoree—they’re all an incredible group of people."

He ended his remarks by referencing U2, "In the midst of the great division, that was President Lincoln’s plea. That we would do well to remember today at a moment when there’s too much hate, too much anger, too much division here in America and quite frankly around the world. We have to remember today as their song goes—we are one, but we are not the same. We get to carry each other," Biden said.

Those paying tributes to the honorees included Julia Roberts, Dianne Reeves, Sheryl Crow and the Highwomen, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, and more. Secretary of State Antony Blinken delivered the opening remarks at a dinner the evening before, sharing, "Ultimately, these artists remind us of our common humanity, that no matter who we are or where we're from, we can and we are all moved by the arts."
