The 2014 Kennedy Center Honors video features notable performances by Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen and Bruno Mars. The musicians sang tributes to Sting, who was being honored for his lifetime contribution to the arts.
Lady Gaga performed Sting’s 1993 tune, “If I Ever Lose My Faith In You.” Bruce Springsteen was joined by a choir at the end of his performance of Sting’s 1996 song, “I Hung My Head.”
Bruno Mars performed a brief version of “So Lonely,” before singing Sting’s hit song “Message in a Bottle.” Mars was joined by other stars and musicians to end the song.
Sting watched the performances with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama and the other 2014 Kennedy Center honorees, including actor Tom Hanks, comedian Lily Tomlin and ballerina Patricia McBride.
