Reigning queen of country music Reba McEntire, who hails from Chockie, will be inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame and perform on the bowl’s opening night of the 2012 season.
Stage and screen legend Julie Andrews will host the special opening night event on Friday, June 22.
The Hollywood Bowl has been home to musicians, conductors, singers, dancers, actors and composers of the highest caliber since its beginnings in the early 1920s. Performing at the Hollywood Bowl is regarded by many as an honor in itself, but the luminaries honored there are further distinguished by their induction in the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame.
The Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame recognizes artists whose achievements embody the spirit of the bowl.
Founded in 2000, the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame celebrates those consummate creators and performers, who, through their talent and effort, have established themselves as true superstars – with appearances on screen, stage, recordings, and at the bowl – whose contributions to the arts have made them part of the fabric of American culture.
