03 TV Constitution

On 4 July 2003 The National Constitution Center, a new $185 million museum on Independence Mall in Philadelphia, opened to the public. Ray contributed to the dedication ceremony with a rendition of America The Beautiful (live, with orchestra tape). You can watch it here; it starts at 1:43:43.
(Ray stopped performing after a concert on July 19th; this may well be the last video taped before a live audience; cf. this).
