What can we say? We love DC in the winter! The debut group returned to capital in January for the historic inauguration of President Barack Obama. We were brought in by our friends at Five Currents and Chris Wayne Associates to consult and coordinate the musical entertainment for The National Wildlife Federation’s 2013 Green Inaugural Ball that brought together 3,000 guests at the Newseum.  The program featured musical director Onree Gill and his band, Grammy Award-winning artist Will.I.Am, Sheila E, Trombone Shorty, Nicholas David (The Voice), and Mayer Hawthorne.

While I’m always reminding Angelia to take pictures, she got a good one all on her own – with Vice President Joe Biden. That night, she was also a Sheila E dancer and I failed to get a good picture of her on stage. We had a great time and so did the press. Check the links below for more pictures and reviews from the event. To find out more about how Angelia Bibbs-Sanders and the debut group can help you put together a great, diverse show, contact us.
