Another Favorite Clip: Verdi for Vital Voices

Alright, Ladies and Gents ... it's been a long time since I brought you Another Favorite Clip. 6 months, to be exact. When I was alerted to this clip though, I instantly knew this would be the one to bring the feature back.

I mean, who doesn't love a good Operatic Flash Mob (done right, of course).

Last week, 100 plus people came to a cocktail party here in NYC for the Vital Voices Mentorship Program. Little did they know that they were in for a surprise serenade. Ten singers from Canada, USA and Puerto Rico - under the guise of being New York City socialites - absolutely thrilled the unsuspecting crowd with a little Verdi.

And for such a wonderful cause, too. Vital Voices - which was in the news recently when Hillary Clinton spoke at their Global Partnership 2013 Global Leadership Awards - states that its mission is to identify, invest in and bring visibility to extraordinary women around the world by unleashing their leadership potential to transform lives and accelerate peace and prosperity in their communities.

I encourage you to check out Vital Voices as they are most certainly a force for good.

BUT... not until you see this first. Directed by baritone Jonathan Estabrooks, this is sure to add a little enjoyment to your Monday!
