Gloria Estefan is set to host the 43rd annual Kennedy Center Honors next month.

It marks her second time hosting the special, which airs Sunday, June 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS and will be available to stream live and on demand on the CBS app and Paramount+. She first hosted in 2018, after being a Kennedy Center honoree the year prior.

“I can’t believe it’s been almost four years that I received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C., and right after that I got the incredible honor of hosting the awards, which I will be doing again on June 6 on CBS,” Gloria says in a video message.

“Don’t miss that amazing night where we honor Joan Baez, Midori, Debbie Allen, Dick Van Dyke and Garth Brooks,” she adds. “It’s gonna be a fantastic show and an amazing Honors.”

The Kennedy Center Honors are traditionally held in early December, but last year’s special was postponed until 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
