Clinton Fundraiser with Barbara Streisand

clintons_mdvOne of my most cherished memories was being hired to sing in a group to back up Barbara Streisand as part of a fundraiser for President Clinton. Barbara Streisand was very down to earth at the rehearsals and President Clinton was incredibly kind, greeting us with hugs and even a box of chocolates for each of us with a sticker of the presidential seal on it. (Which I’m pretty sure is the only box of chocolates given to me that I haven’t torn into and eaten!) Heading home from the event I received a text from a friend: “Did I just see you hug the president of the United States on the news right now????” So surreal to text back “Yes!”
