He is the youngest recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors, and is a Commander of France's National Order of Arts and Letters.
Stevie was awarded the Library of Congress' Gershwin Prize for Popular Song and performed his commission, 'Sketches Of A Life,' which placed him in a very select group of eminent composers who have received library commissions, including Aaron Copeland, Leonard Bernstein and Paquito D'Rivera.
Stevie has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and he is a designated U.N. Messenger of Peace with special focus on persons with disabilities.
