The Nashville Pops Orchestra presented playwright, producer, singer, songwriter and actress, Kathie Lee Gifford, with a Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of her voluminous accomplishments with focus on the difference she has made in the lives of others and making the world a better place. A devoted humanitarian, Gifford lends support to numerous children’s organizations including Childhelp and the Association to Benefit Children, which spawned Cassidy’s Place and Cody House, named after her two children. She recently debuted three new songs, “Love Me to Death”, “He Saw Jesus” and “Jesus Is His Name” with Grammy-winning songwriter, Brett James. Each song debuted #1 on iTunes. She has just wrapped principal photography on THEN CAME YOU, a film she has written, produced and starred in alongside Craig Ferguson. The inaugural gala event, An Evening With Kathie Lee Gifford, was held at the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum on Saturday, Nov.16 to benefit the The Bright Horizons Award. Funds raised through donations created the opportunity to award $5,000 to a deserving institution.
Guests were entertained by special performance by New York entertainers, Highline Vocal Jazz.
