I have never been to a bad concert at the Kennedy Center but this one was among the best. Roberta Flack has such a unique voice and her stage voice is truly captivating. The first half of the night was just the NSO Pops playing the likes of Barry White and a melody of Diana Ross hits. It is great to see such music played on classical interestes.
But when Roberta came out in her sparkling attire it was an amazing experience. Her band blended seamlessly with the orchestra and her interaction with the audience was impressive. It was just well done from head to toe and she even got the orchestra director to assist her at the grand piano in singing Hey Jude. Remarkable talent.
