Word was out that singer Vikki Carr wasn't thrilled about her scheduled appearance at a party for the Pacific Symphony's Hispanic Program Advisory Committee after her concert at the Orange County Performing Arts Center on Saturday night.
(After all, socializing into the wee hours can be exhausting after you've sung your heart out.)
"But she was in her glory" at the $55-per-person bash for about 200 party-goers, observed the symphony executive director, Louis Spisto. "Once she got there, she was a doll."
She chatted, rubbed elbows and posed for pictures until midnight.
Two of the party-goers--Deeann and Al Baldwin--have known Carr for more than 25 years. In fact, Carr and her husband, Michael Nielson, attended the Baldwins' 25th-anniversary party in their Emerald Bay home three years ago.
"It was wonderful to hear her sing at the Center," Deeann said. "Especially that number 'How Am I Supposed to Live Without You?' She almost made me cry."
