Mr. ModFab And Walter Cronkite



The funeral of Walter Cronkite was yesterday, at St. Bartholomew's Church here in New York City. It was a beautiful touching ceremony...and here at ModFab HQ, quite an event. That's because Mr. ModFab, my adorable husband, was asked to be the featured singer for the funeral. He performed four songs, including an improvised version of "When The Saints Go Marching In" requested by the family. An enormous honor, and one that he pulled off beautifully. I'm very proud of him!

In the news snippet above, you can hear bits of some of the performance. It was a moving ceremony, for a man I believe to be the greatest news presence of the 20th century. If you'd like to hear more, you can listen to tracks here.

Wow, that gave me chills. What a deep, beautiful voice. And what a great honor. I know how how proud you must be. Hopefully I'll get to meet Mr. ModFab someday!

Last summer, Catherine and I met some friends from out of town for a service at St. Bart's. We had no idea that Mr. MF sang there and were overjoyed to see that he was the featured soloist that day. His voice is such a perfect match for that sanctuary: he fills it so well and yet it sounds so effortless. Needless to say, our friends incredibly impressed that we knew such a talented performer—as well they should have been!
