Meeting the great Roberta Flack

I had the pleasure of meeting The great Roberta Flack, for any one out there who doesnt know who she is Flack is best known for her Hot 100 #1 singles "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", "Killing Me Softly with His Song", and "Feel Like Makin' Love", as well as "Where Is the Love" and "The Closer I Get to You", two of her many duets with Donny Hathaway. "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" won the 1973 Grammy Record of the Year, and "Killing Me Softly with His Song" won the same award at the Grammy Awards of 1974.[1] She and U2 are the only artists to win the award in back-to-back years.

Roberta performed for Project sunshine's seventh annual benefit on May 11th and she brought the house down! Project Sunshine is a group that i raised money for and volunteer my Artwork.

Project Sunshine empowers a dynamic and dedicated corps of over 10,000 volunteers to bring programming - recreational (arts), educational (tutoring and mentoring) and social service (HIV and nutritional counseling) - to over 60,000 children facing medical challenges and their families in 100 major cities across the United States and in five international satellite sites: Canada, China, Israel, Kenya and Puerto Rico.
