Monday, the White House paid tribute to several distinguished artists with an awards ceremony. Linda Ronstadt was given the National Medal of Arts for her "one-of-a-kind voice and decades of remarkable music." Ronstadt is a Grammy Award-winning artist best known for hits like "It's So Easy" and "All My Life." "I told Linda Ronstadt I had a little crush on her back in the day," President Barack Obama sais. "And I know all of you have been touched similarly by these amazing people. So we are very grateful to you." Some of the other Medal of Arts recipients were choreographer Bill T. Jones and documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles.
