Now, that is talent

The Kennedy Center Honors

In a time where "No Talent Required" acts such as Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha dominate the airwaves, it was refreshing and breathtaking to witness the epic performance this past Wednesday night, by Ann & Nancy Wilson.  It was the Kennedy Center Honors.  One of the honorees recognized this year, was Led Zeppelin.  As Jack Black aptly stated, "the greatest rock and roll band of all time".  I am biased, of course, as I have been a Zeppelin fan for over 35 years.  And although the surviving members of Led Zeppelin did not perform - the Wilson sisters and their God given, natural talent, did.  Ann tackled Stairway to Heaven, and executed it with powerful and moving vocals with Nancy on guitar.  The two were joined by an arrangement that included an orchestra, an inspiring background chorus and a guitar solo that impressed Jimmy Page and brought tears to Robert Plant's eyes.  If you are a fan of true rock, it is a You Tube amazing must see.    Hope everyone has a Happy New Year !
