Last month while watching on TV Katy Perry performing at the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show, happened to notice a box of Kellogg’s Special “K” breakfast cereal sitting on my kitchen counter top. Somehow the thought of whether Katy Perry was a special “K” crossed my mind. The fact that her performance was seen by 118.5 million viewers in the U.S. alone, making it the most-watched halftime show ever, according to Nielsen data, does make her special. How many of those viewers will continue to follow her music and become fans remain to be seen.

Since beauty is in the eyes or ears or heart of the beholder, one person’s special “K” might not appear as such to other people. But if I am to name one special “K” that most on this forum will agree on, it has to be our beloved JacKie!
From what I could gather, a certain Duchess Kate of Cambridge from jolly ole England is very popular, not only at home, but in some other parts of the world as well. No doubt she is the special “K” to a lot of people.
Over on State side, two iconic public figures that would remain special for generations to come are of course John F. Kennedy and Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
Other performing artists I have in mind need no introduction. They are the royalty of entertainment world, the very special King Elvis, Prince of Pop Michael JacKson and Queen B- Beyonce Knowles.
While on the subject of special “K’s” of the music industry, want to throw in Casey Kasem, who for close to 30 years, had hosted the venerable radio music countdown program, The American Top 40 radio show. Likewise for Dick ClarK, who hosted American Bandstand for nearly 30 years as well. For the innumerable young gals and guys growing up listening and watching their shows, these 2 industry giants would forever be a special part of their memories. RIP, CK and DC.

Knowing me, you could feel that I am going to put NBA in the mix! That’s right!!!!
With 2 NBA championship rings, 4 regular season MVP Awards and 2 Olympic Gold, LeBron ‘King’ James is indeed a special NBA athlete.
So is Kobe Bryant, who gobbled up 5 NBA championship rings, 1 regular season MVP nod and 2 Olympic Gold.
Yet you might want to vote for the two big 7 footer Germans for German pride - DirK Nowitzki and Chris Kamen, both NBA All Stars, Members of the German Olympic Team, and DirK also has a NBA championship ring to boot!
I have just run out of cereal. So meanwhile WHO is the Special “K” in your life? Could be a famous person, or could be anybody……........ Your little brother or sister, your partner, a neighbor, a long lost friend, a family member, a co-worker, a chance encounter perhaps……......... Anyone that holds a special place in your heart………..
