This weekend five of the country's leading performing artists will be feted at the 25th annual Kennedy Center Honors, to be televised later this month. We play clips from the careers of actor James Earl Jones, conductor James Levine, actor Elizabeth Taylor, singer Paul Simon and actor, singer and dancer Chita Rivera.
