On Thursday, I was interviewed by Jenniffer Weigel at the Chicago Theater for the Tribune’s Chicago Live! with the Second City. Host Rick Kogan delivered a star-studded line up, including local politicians, personalities, musicians, comedians, and the Blackhawks’ Head Coach, Joel Quenneville. It was an amazing evening all around, but the coolest part, by far, came after my interview, when my daughter, along with four of her Nettelhorst pals, got to sing her little heart out accompanied by, get this, Robbie Fulks!
Here’s the Chicago Live! radio podcast of our girls–Maya, Caitlin, Abby, Regin, and Annie–rocking-out Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours.” One critic raved “Those girls from Nettlehorst and Robbie Fulks brought the house down. What a great night!” The energy backstage was infectious–check-out Jen Weigel’s sneak peak video of the cast. I’m one super-proud mama!
If you’re in Chicago on November 17th, I hope you can make it to the United Way’s Education Action Summit. Geoffrey Canada will be the keynote speaker, and I’ll be on the discussion panel after, moderated by Robin Steans of Advance Illinois.
