George Clinton honored at Big Boi's Big Kidz gala

Posted By on Fri, Aug 3, 2012 at 5:02 PM

Thursday was a celebration of charity and art on behalf of the Big Kidz Foundation, the philanthropic vision of Outkast's Antwon "Big Boi" Patton. The awards ceremony bestowed "Champions of the Arts" honors on Tony Award winner Hinton Battle, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and the architect of P-Funk himself George Clinton.

In a press briefing earlier in the night Clinton spoke of his love for dubstep or what he claimed to be "that doo-doo." He went on to explain "that doo-doo" as the music old folks and parents just can't stand. After prompting him to give me the doo-doo face, he provided the funk face shown above.

Big Boi joins Clinton on stage as they quickly bust into song, while the evening's host, Egypt Sherrod of V-103, takes it all in.

Guitarist Clinton Davis and singer Latocha Scott provided the musical entertainment for the event.

The night's first recipient of the Champion of the Arts award went to the Tony Award winning actor/dancer Hinton Battle.

Receiving on behalf of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra was the Orchestra's director of Education and Community Engagement Mark Kent.
