Carrie Underwood performed at the 2013 Emmy Awards on Sunday night, honoring The Beatles and the late President John F. Kennedy, who died in 1963.
She was there to honor the role TV played in the assassination of JFK, and the great rock band performing on The Ed Sullivan Show for the first time.
Both events took place within a few months of each other in 1963-1964.
Don Cheadle presented a moving tribute for the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination (November 22, 1963), then turned his attention to the Fab Four.
Don started JFK’s assassination tribute by saying:
"That [era] was the moment when the television generation came of age. More people got information from TV, such as Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic march."
