Thursday night in Boston,
Berklee College of Music awarded funk icon George Clinton an honorary doctor of
music degree and celebrated his music with a performance from the college’s
P-Funk Ensemble. He’s pictured above receiving the award.

 

After the presentation, Clinton traded his doctoral robes for a
silver suit to perform with student musicians on “Testify,”
“Give Up the Funk,” and “One Nation Under a Groove,” among
other P-Funk hits. Clinton’s
longtime horn players Bennie Cowan and Greg Thomas, and many other members of
his current band, joined him on stage for the career-spanning, sold-out show.
The concert was the culmination of Clinton’s
four-day residency at Berklee this week. Check out the video clip:
