The Capital Hearings a cappella group performs almost anywhere theyre needed, including Eastern Market.
But for each, the Capital Hearings brings another joy to song, something they donít find in their symphonic shows: Whether itís allowing a 5-year-old girl to conduct the group with a candy cane at Eastern Market or daring a Capitol Hill flash mob, the Caps, it seems, thrive on spontaneity thatís well-received.
Almost every person in the Cannon House Office Building room, for example, stood and chimed in with ďAmerica the BeautifulĒ by the songís end. When the Caps walked off after finishing their song, Rep. Rush Holt (D-N.J.) expressed what everyone was wondering: ďWho are you guys?Ē
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
