The eyes of the world are on Washington, D.C. as Barack Obama becomes the 44th President of the United States. Whatever ones political beliefs, we are seeing history in the making.
When I think of Washington D.C., I always remember the performance by Clay Aiken on July 4, 2004. The PBS Live From Washington, D.C. show was an extravaganza of music and fireworks.
Reality TV World interviewed Clay who said:
“It’s just a cooler opportunity to be in Washington, D.C., for the holiday with a big 110-piece orchestra.”
Clay sang “The Star Spangled Banner,” “God Bless the USA, and “Measure of a Man”. Even with the rainy weather, about half a million people attended the event.
Washington, D.C. is a beautiful city with a history that is filled with many memorable moments. January 20, 2009 is a day when the world is watching our capital city and seeing a moment of democracy at work.
