a celebratory concert at the lincoln memorial.
this afternoon i braved the wicked winter weather to revel in the inaugural excitement that is sweeping into the district. i was joined by a crowd of nearly 1 million people gathered on the mall to watch the “we are one” inaugural concert at the lincoln memorial. it was an amazing and inspiring musical + historical tribute to our country and our next president. i loved the outstanding energy + excitement of the crowd, and it was thrilling just to be there, let alone all the incredible celebrities, musicians, and of course, the obamas! the highlight was definitely hearing president elect obama speak to the sea of supportive, cheering people – i admire and respect his optimism, determination, and ability to unite people and i anticipate many good times ahead.
