Last Wednesday night, Webb received another honor when a number of his colleagues gathered in New York City at Carnegie Hall to pay tribute to him and his music. Also called “The Cake and the Rain” (same title as memoir), the event was billed as a celebration of the music of Jimmy Webb. It also served as a benefit for Alzheimer’s research in honor of (Glen) Campbell, who was not only a frequent collaborator of Webb’s, but a friend as well.

Much like the recent Merle Haggard tribute in Nashville, the tribute to Webb’s music drew a disparate group of performers. - James Beaty

Jimmy was on BBC4 again singing "Didn't we" on the Singer/Songwriter series. They mentioned his work with Glen and Richard Harris. The clip was from the early seventies.

Fellow Oklahoma natives Toby Keith, Hanson and B.J. Thomas; musical luminaries like Judy Collins, Art Garfunkel, Amy Grant, Graham Nash, Johnny Rivers and Dwight Yoakam; and Oscar-winning actors Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones paid homage to legendary songwriter Jimmy Webb Wednesday night at New York's Carnegie Hall.

Check out the other videos, too, on the same YouTube Channel (Stephen Hurtes). The audio is poor on some vids, but the one posted below (not in the article) is sublime: the great Judy Collins!
Catherine Zeta-Jones performed an amazing "Didn't We"!
Ashley Campbell performed "You Might As Well Smile" (I couldn't locate a video of her performance; can you?)

Jimmy Webb participated in an on-stage presentation held at the Country Music Hall of Fame!! This presentation was filmed for the museum's songwriter archives and is available (for a short time) on Live Stream. JW speaks at length about his collaborations with Glen Campbell. Clips of Glen are shown during the show.
Kim Campbell was in attendance and received a round of applause.

Watch the Live Stream (repeat) here: http://countrymusichalloffame.org/Conte ... QWO5xPyuUk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
(The video takes a few seconds for the audio to start.)

He is the only person ever to win Grammy awards in music, lyrics, and orchestration. He is the youngest person ever inducted to the Songwriting Hall Of Fame. Even if you don't know the name Jimmy Webb - you know his unforgettable music.
