  1. Amazing how many people are talking and not respecting the artist. That's why grow ups shouldn't drink. Beth is an amazing artist , this is beautiful.

  2. I am amazed how the patrons are disrespecting Beth with the loud chatter but not at all surprised at Beth's composure. This is amazing which does not surprise me at all from Beth. She is top of her form here. I can't think of any contemporary female artist who has Beth's soul and talent and puts it out there to share. She is in line for the crown! just sayin'
