Some Enchanted Evening

Last night we had the opportunity to attend the Gift of Music concert at the Conference Center. It was wonderful! The program consisted of songs and pieces by The Utah Symphony and Tabernacle Choir; with special guests Denyce Graves, and Brian Stokes Mitchell. I had never heard of Denyce Graves before last night. She is a very famous oprah singer (which explains why I don't know her). Brian Stokes Mitchell has performed on broadway several times, and is most famous for Ragtime and Man of La Moncha. That still didn't help me figure out who he is, but this did: he was also the singing voice of Danny Glover in Prince of Egypt. His voice is amazing! His range is incredible. He was a wonderful performer! He even brought tears to my eyes at one point.
Anyway, we are so glad that Duane was able to get some tickets for this, AND that they (Melinda and Duane) wanted to share them with us. Thanks guys for the wonderful evening. A double-date if you will. And Melinda, the cheesecake was delicious!

Congratulations on post #100! They have been fun to read. Here's to another 100!

I'm glad that you were able to attend that concert. I have heard from several people now that it was wonderful. I caught a small part of it last Sunday on t.v.. It sent goosebumps all over my body. Absolutely beautiful!
