ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Among the hundreds of policy events in the nation’s capital on Wednesday, one in particular stands out. Authentic cultural icon, family man, performer, man of faith and conservative stalwart Pat Boone is in town to have his say about the state of the nation, and his own 60-year career in entertainment. He’ll appear at high noon at the Heritage Foundation, just a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol.

“He has lived an amazing life of integrity. Who else has remained so true to his faith, family values, and love of God while being mobbed by screaming teenage girls; starring in Hollywood movies; befriending royalty, presidents, and rock stars alike; and staring out from the cover of Rolling Stone magazine?” the organizers ask.

“People agree and disagree with him - about rock ‘n roll, politics, religion, the usual stuff - but Pat Boone has lived a truly American story and an iconic one at that,” they add.

Mr. Boone has not been shy about adding his unique insight into politics in Hollywood and elsewhere for years.

The one-hour event is moderated by James L. Martin, chairman of the 60 Plus Association and John E. Hilboldt, seminar director for Heritage. Yes, the session will be streamed live online at 12 p.m. ET. Find it here.
