performances were excellent, though poor Taye Diggs was almost out of gas after taking a flight from Toronto on the same day. He is amazing to hang in there, though you could tell how much of an effort it was for him given the jet lag and the flight. Even with all that, he is great. The acapella singing was fine. The "cause" was good and well presented, though the "intro" speaker for the NCT group was overlong and racing through her material. Shorter and more effective would have been better.
The marketing for this could have been better as the audience did not fill half the room for a first class show. Perhaps some lower prices would also have helped. Still top quality, and with these improvements, perhaps a knockout.

Whiffs were awesome but Diggs did not bring his game. He was unprepared, which he admitted. He forgot lyrics, cursed and generally acted in an unprofessional manner. By contrast, the college students seemed much more professional.
