The song they performed? One of Flack's signature hits, "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face."
Flack, 71, who will perform Saturday at Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, first sang that song in jazz clubs in Washington, D.C., long before she even had a record contract.
That's from Tom Weber's "Flack brings class, hits to Riverside Live concert" (Post-Bulletin) and she'll be performing tomorrow night at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, MN. Robert Flack is one of a kind. If you're lucky enough to be in that area tomorrow night, her concert starts at 7:30 p.m. Roberta's a talented woman who's bringing joy and love sharing that talent. She's got a gift.
Contrast the enjoyment her art provides with the crass efforts of KFC to make a buck off a woman. This is from NOW's Erin Matson's "KFC, Double Down and Are You Married? This is what sexism sounds like."
Having just hung up the phone from a live radio interview with John Carlson on KOMO Seattle about KFC's disgusting college campus guerilla marketing stunt, I'm still shaking my head in disbelief.
How sexist and irrelevant is it for Carlson to ask me: Are you married? Do you have kids?
Which of course has nothing to do with my qualifications to discuss the appropriateness of giving college women $500 to wear sweatpants with "Double Down" written on the butt, and distribute coupons to men who stare at their butts.
The campaign is shameful. It takes advantage of broke college students to send a message that women's bodies are public property -- all to sell a greasy, nasty sandwich.
