Oh the music

I'd have to say that
for me
That was the coolest Inauguration ever!!!

Not just because of the "peaceful transfer of power",
nor the freezing temperatures,
but because my favorite musical performers were there
to perform.

Who doesn't love Aretha? (if you put your hand up....put it down... before I smack it down!)
When she sang this
I cried.

Then there was Itzhak Perlman, and Yo Yo Ma.
They both bring joy to my soul (really)!

Why are you not doing this!!! Get on there girl! You will have hundreds of hits. Give something away form your store! Get new customers...go see other blogs...spend even more time sitting in front of the glowing box! I even got hubbie to do it. How funny is that. I'm sure he is the token male on the list...he's so "metro"! ~giggle~

Aretha sounded great and didn't she look grand in that fabulous hat?

Those musicians playing together gave me chills, just to see the top of the top of the top of the line harmonizing.

I loved the four musicians doing their interpretation of one of my favorite traditional songs - wasn't that beautiful!
