When Newport Coast resident Resa Hempfling sings "It Had to Be You" at the Jan. 20 Inauguration of President-elect George W. Bush, she's putting all party politics aside. The "nonpartisan" alto jazz singer is a veteran musician when it comes to presidential galas. It's her third since President Clinton was inaugurated in 1993. Hempfling, who performs solo or with her jazz combo, is a regular at the Hyatt Newporter.
