Kennedy Center Honorees

Ever happen to go watch a video on YouTube and you end up watching videos that may or may NOT happen to be what you were searching for and got distracted…

Wouldn’t be the first time that has happened to me! haha.

I want to share my favorite Kennedy Center Honorees so far.

So - here are my two favorites - Billy Joel and Sting.

Enjoy! oh and ummm.. don’t get lost! haha!

Kori Carothers

A musician's path to her/his muse is sometimes an easy one. Other times, it is filled with potential pitfalls or unexpected obstacles. Kori Linae Carothers faced just that when, during a kindergarten health screening at the age of 5, it was discovered she was deaf in her left ear. Her young peers found out and the teasing began. In addition, throughout elementary and high school, Kori was constantly told she would never become a musician. Undeterred, she kept learning and practicing, never surrendering her dream. Despite these discouragements, Carothers was passionate about her calling and now, years later, she is an acclaimed pianist and keyboard player with four albums to her credit. Clearly, she is an example of a person following her muse with courage, humor, and determination. - Bill Binkelman
