A Grammy Legend
February 26, 1992
of a lifetime occurred for me on February 26, 1992. The occasion
was the 34th Annual Grammy Awards Show from Radio City Music Hall.
I scored a last minute ticket, took my tux out of mothballs and headed
down to Rockefeller Center for the broadcast. I was going to see
Barbra Streisand - IN PERSON - for the very first time!
Barbra was receiving
the evening's Grammy Legend Award. Stephen Sondheim was on hand
to make the presentation to Barbra for her very special Grammy.
The big anticipation
of the night was whether Barbra would or would not sing before a
worldwide audience on a live broadcast. Barbra, following her
gracious acceptance speech did indeed sing. Although they were
only a few notes of "You'll Never Know," sung a capella, they were
enough for me. After a lifetime of being an ardent admirer, I
finally got to see Barbra. And she sang! It was a dream
