Last night I had the honor of seeing the legendary Carly Simon perform at 1Oak in New York City as part of the Tribeca Film Festival. The festival helped Simon run a contest where people made a music video to her 1973 hit "You're So Vain." Before this there had never been a music video to the classic song. Throughout the night the videos were played but the most amazing part was when Carly Simon began to sing!
Now I know that I go on and on about Gaga and Britney but PLEASE BELIEVE I know my legends! I was thrilled that I got to see Simon perform in such an intimate setting. Simon started the performance by talking about the project and letting people know that they were going to just have fun and go with the flow. She said that she might even invite people on stage to sing and that she did!
She started the night off by singing with her son Ben Taylor, son of Simon and singer James Taylor. Later she invited her sister Lucy Simon to join her and they sang "Winkin', Blinkin' and Nod." It was pretty epic to say the least.
Simon closed the night with her mega hit "You're So Vain." Before she began the song she invited anyone who wanted to sing with her to go on stage. I jumped on this because I figured when you get the offer to sing on stage with a legend you don't ask questions, you just GO!
Check out the video of this performance and be sure to look to the left hand corner to see me on stage with Carly Simon singing "You're So Vain." So dreamy! Like clouds in my coffee...
