“I”m not here to make a political speech… Tonight my thoughts are only personal… I can”t wait for the morning on November 5th when the people who said ”Yes we can” wake up and say ”Yes we did,”” FoxNews.com quoted her, as saying.
Streisand was not the only performer on the bill. She was preceded by Ben Harper and also by Broadway star Raul Esparza, who sang “America the Beautiful.”
