Jon Batiste and Mavis Staples were among the honourees at the Gordon Parks Foundation’s Annual Awards Dinner on Tuesday, 6 June, 2017 at Ciprani 42nd Street in New York City.
The evening featured a guest list of musicians, celebrities, artists and politicians who come together, not only to celebrate the legacy of Gordon Parks, but also to honour those who continue to strive to make an impact in the world of performing and visual arts, and humanitarianism.
Speaking at the event, Stephen Colbert said “Well, good evening. I’m so happy to be here tonight to be talking about a man who makes my show special every night … and for once, I am not talking about Donald Trump!” Before going on to talk about the ‘Late Show’ bandleader Jon Batiste, who “led my entire [Colbert Report] audience onto 53rd Street for a New Orleans-style musical parade that he calls a ‘love riot’ and police call a ‘funky gridlock.'” It is Jon’s belief that we “we can definitely use the arts in this ‘very tumultuous time'”.

Stephen Colbert took to the Carnegie Hall stage on Wednesday morning to open CBS’ annual Upfront presentation. Last year the late night host barely got mention, largely being overshadowed by ‘Late Late Show’ host James Corden, but this year saw the return of Colbert as one of the network’s most prized stars.
The network’s 90-minute presentation to advertisers saw Colbert belt out a show tune about CBS’ most-watched status, before delivering a monologue that riffed on the most significant factor in the ‘Late Show’s’ incredible ratings turnaround: President Donald Trump and his administration.
Colbert was followed on stage by CBS Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves, who, rather than focus too much on the network’s performance, praised the late night hosts 15-week winning streak in total viewers – the ‘Late Show’ still trails the ‘Tonight Show’ in the key 18-24 demographic. “Stephen Colbert and ‘The Late Show’ are killing it. If you think I love Stephen more now because he’s No. 1, you’re right. Who would have thought that Stephen Colbert would be No. 1 and Bill O’Reilly would be doing a podcast in his underwear,” quipped Moonves.
For a recap of the CBS Upfront presentations, head to the Hollywood Reporter, Deadline and Entertainment Weekly.
