This past Saturday night I had a chance to see the “Joyful Sounds” gospel choir perform at the Kennedy Center for the week-long celebration of gospel music.
There were a number of national gospel stars there including Walter Hawkins, Richard Smallwood and Lecresia Campbell. My legal assistant sang alto in the choir (which was my specific reason for being there). The choir was joined by the National Symphony Orchestra.
A beautiful musical mosaic celebrating a uniquely American tradition.
On Sunday morning, I joined 500+ local runners at the Vienna Elementary 5K. This completes the “Vienna 5K Spring Series” of races at Vienna Elementary, Madison HS and Wolf Trap Elementary.
Not my best effort. 23:02. The trend line is in the wrong direction!
