當我看到 Stevie Wonder(史帝夫汪達) 獲頒美國國會圖書館第二屆蓋希文流行音樂獎(Gershwin Prize for Popular Song) 的新聞時,腦海裡馬上出現一個疑問:圖書館跟流行音樂有什麼關係? 不過在找出答案之前,我倒是先上網看看有沒有他 2月25日在美國白宮演出的影片🙂


Stevie Wonder

美國公共電視網(PBS, Public Broadcasting Service) 除了全程電視轉播,也將影片放在網路上,即使是全螢幕播放,畫質仍相當的清晰,片長1小時,觀看網址請點 這裡

如果覺得沒時間看全程影片的話,YouTube 也有一些重要的片斷:

美國總統 Barack Obama 及 Stevie Wonder 的談話內容:

致於我的第一個問題,在 Wikipedia 找到這樣的答案,資料來源是美國國會圖書館網站:

The Gershwin prize was created and first awarded by the Library of Congress in 2007 under the leadership of Librarian of Congress James H. Billington to recognize “the profound and positive effect of popular music on the world’s culture" as part of the Library’s mission to recognize and celebrate creativity. The recipient of the Gershwin Prize is said to:"exemplify the standard of excellence associated with the Gershwins." In selecting the recipient, the Librarian of Congress works with staff of the Library’s Music Division as well as the broader music community.

至於獲頒首屆蓋希文流行音樂獎的是誰呢? 答案是 Paul Simon
