Denise Thimes to sing for Queen Elizabeth

St. Louis vocalist Denise Thimes is in Washington D.C. and is set to perform tonight at the British Embassy for an event honoring Queen Elizabeth, the British monarch who's currently making a state visit to the US. According to this story by Leisa Zigman of KSDK, Thimes got the gig after the British ambassdor's wife saw her perform at the Kuwait embassy a few month ago. You can watch the video version of the report, which includes some comments from Thimes, here.

Thimes' annual Mothers Day concert, which this year will feature trumpeter Clark Terry as special guest, takes place Sunday, May 13 at the Sheldon Concert Hall.

UPDATE - 5/12/07, 1:30 p.m.: Post-Dispatch columnist Sylvester Brown Jr. talked with Thimes after her royal experience, and has written about the conversation for the weekend paper. Read it online here.
