How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Probably one of the most disappointing performances I've seen. Rita Coolidge appeared to be battling something in her throat as well as in her ear (faulty earpiece?). Some numbers were wonderful, especially the BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE duet with her drummer. They had amazing chemistry and were adorably playful. The other musicians were also terrific. But Rita's voice faultered in too many noticeable places. She did try a lozenge at one point but I know those can only do so much. It was still nice to hear some of the old faves. I had no idea she had any connection to the Carpenters song SUPERSTAR. You learn something new...
