Reba & Kelly
We went to see Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson in concert at Harbor Yard (Bridgeport, CT) last night.
I had heard that they put on a good concert, but it was FANTASTIC. I had never heard of Reba until we lived in NC. With all the country radio stations down south, you can't miss hearing one of her songs several times a day. Kelly is best know as the first American Idol winner.
I was really impressed by Kelly's voice - very strong, powerful,and beautiful. Reba sounded and performed like the superstar she is. The women sang together, separately and swapped songs. It was amazing that age did not seem to matter (20+ vs 50+), and you could tell that each appreciated the others music and talent.
The other interesting thing was the crowd. The age of people in attendance ranged from 8-60+. I saw a young girl (8), her Mom and her Grandmother all sitting together. Everyone seemed to have a great time.
