On Sunday, January 18, 2008 for the "We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration", Renée Fleming looked on as Stevie Wonder snacked on a harmonica.
She also belted it out of the [Lincoln Memorial] park with her reheated vocals, taking the stage with the US Naval Academy Glee Club for Rodgers & Hammerstein's "You'll Never Walk Alone." OC is proud that her hometown diva was plucked among the contenders to represent the ~opera star~ constituency at such a historical event. Go Renée go! Rub those red cashmere shoulders with Barack Obama...damn!
Josh Groban, the unrequited lusty nerd idol of middle-aged housewives, was also in attendance, making the ladies trill in their panties. o yeah.
