AT the end of the luncheon Sue sang the song she performed last year but she didn't play the piano. David and Sue's friend, singer/songwriter Andrew Gold, was part of a panel that Sue moderated on Songwriting.
At midnight, the public gathered outside The Mirage for the group recording of "Message To The World" at the John Lennon Songwriting Bus. Sue hosted this recording. David did not attend this recording as he needed to rest up for the Golf Tournament the following morning. His son Beau and daughter Katie had fun inside the bus, fooling around and playing the instruments.
