Lee Ann Womack Performs At Maya Angelou Memorial


(Winston-Salem, NC) -- Lee Ann Womack is among the many mourners who said goodbye to Maya Angelou over the weekend. The country star performed her signature hit, "I Hope You Dance," at a memorial for the legendary poet, author, and activist Saturday at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Womack, wearing a brilliant blue dress, was backed on the song by a guitar and a group of violins. She was invited to sing at the service by the Angelou family, because "I Hope You Dance" was one of Maya's favorites. The memorial also included tributes from Oprah Winfrey, First Lady Michelle Obama, former President Bill Clinton, and others. Maya Angelou passed away on May 28th, at the age of 86.
