D.C.’s road to statehood got a major push forward yesterday when adorable children came out for the righteous cause. Singing the D.C. statehood song created by John Oliver on his show last week, these children took it to the Capitol with a rousing performance.
Miki Jourdan, Jocelyn Crawford, and I were all there photographing the event, along with a few more famous people such as Eleanor Holmes Norton and Miss District of Columbia. Here are some of the things we saw:
The adorable children
Miss District of Columbia
She was a major hit with everyone – kids, dogs, and adults.
Eleanor Holmes Norton, the shadow Senators, and other adults came to support the cause.
The performance was open to all children who showed up, and their enthusiasm was fantastic. The Hill is Home created the event and provided the adult support. Here’s their video of the kids singing.
And if you missed the original John Oliver segment, here it is:
