There was of plenty of cultural entertainment, song and dance even though the great atrium was vast the the Event/ production company did a fantastic job making it intimate and homey for the guest.

My complaint was they did a lousy job for the visiting Press; which I may expound on later because it felt like I was in a Hockey and or Football game the way Security was instructed to prevent us from doing our occupations.

?uestlove was the DJ of the night and The Roots was the backup band… fantastic and very entertaining.  The biggest surprise, for me, was Mayor Nutter doing a duet with Black Thought and rapping his favorite song, Rapper’s Delight!  The Mayor can really really rap – Wow!
