BATTLE: The Pope and the President

(I'm sorry, that colon should have been a comma.)

It's not as thrilling as it sounds. It turns out that Kathleen Battle sang for the Pope and the President today at the White House. She sang "The Lord's Prayer." I'm hearing reports that (to put it nicely) she could have sounded better.
The article also says that there was a spontaneous outburst of "Happy Birthday" in honor of the Holy Father's 81st birthday today. Aw! I'm happy to say that I will be seeing the Pope at a youth rally on Saturday! Oh, I'm so excited! =)

Happy Listening!!! =)

You are mistaken... the 59-year-old living legend, Kathleen Battle, sounded fantastic!!
