Václav Havel: We Shall Overcome

20th Anniversary of the Velvet Revolution

A concert, set up by Václav Havel and featuring Joan Baez, Suzanne Vega, Lou Reed and Renée Fleming, took place yesterday, 14 November, at the Prague Crossroads.

In the end, the two major guests, Renée Fleming and Lou Reed, sang Perfect Day together.

After that, all the guest sang together the song Freedom.

During the concert, Renée Fleming also sang the obligatory Song to the Moon

...and, correct me if I'm wrong, she sang for the first time Milada's aria from Smetana's Dalibor. I hope that will appear on YouTube, too.

Thanks for uploading to MrFrais and velehof. If you're interested in more videos from the concert, visit their channels.
