Transcript for Garth Brooks and Debbie Allen among this year’s Kennedy Center honorees
Michael, could you reach -- point to that gentleman out there. He's been trying to get your attention. George and I waved and he's like not you, you. They could care less about us. Could you get Strahan? All right. That was the wrong guy that we had -- I know. Got the thumb's up. There he is. There he is. You see people trickle back. You know, back to times square. All right, all right. Let's go back to "Gma." Tomorrow we have more on the incredible story of the all women team of health care they are traveling on sleds hundreds of miles to deliver covid vaccines in the freezing alaskan wild. We cannot wait to their that. Heroes for sure. Right now it is time for "Pop news" with Lara. Hey, Lara, good morning. Hi, you guys, good morning to you. We'll begin with the Kennedy center honors. A lifetime achievement recognition considered to be one of the most prestigious in American pop culture traditionally held in December. Due to the pandemic, unfortunately, the ceremony postponed until may and this morning, the honorees are being shared including Garth brooks, folk singer Joan baez, actor Dick Van Dyke honored at 95 years young, dancer, choreographer and actress Debbie Allen and musician midori. This is the first time the event will not take place at the Kennedy center opera house. Instead several smaller events that take place around the campus from may 17th to may 22nd.

You can hear more from her when part two of her interview drops tomorrow. That's interesting. I'm sorry. Drinking milk, because you would think that would -- who knew? She knows. I used to drink a lot of milk growing up and I can't sing a lick. Yeah. You never know. There's a lot more apparently coming on that Mariah podcast. Guy, this one is for Michael.

Check out this neighborhood in Houston, Texas, whose street signs might have you ask kwhog is on first and the delivery driver who had enough and had to share his frustration. Take a look at this. Delivering packages and I'm like, bro, what kind of neighborhood is this? Which way, right way. Like that way, this way andive sane way. Imagine living here trying to give directions.
