Lee Greenwood delivered a distinguished performance of ‘God Bless The U.S.A.’ Tuesday to over 2,000 esteemed guests at the Washington Hilton’s International Ballroom in Washington, D.C. at the 106th First Lady’s Luncheon, ‘Limitless Horizons’, honoring the First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump. The event was presented by The Congressional Club Museum and Foundation, co-chaired by Congressional spouses Pat O’Halleran (D-IL) and Jennifer Messer, (R-IN). Greenwood was joined by “The President’s Own” United States Marine Corps Band, featuring Master Sergeant Kevin L. Bennear who performed the National Anthem. Country artist Billy Dean, performed his original song, “Be Best,” as a tribute to Mrs. Trump’s formal platform, a comprehensive children’s program to focus on three main points: well-being, fighting opioid abuse and positivity on social media.

“As a mother and as first lady, it concerns me that in today’s fast-paced and ever-connected world, children can be less prepared to express or manage their emotions and oftentimes turn to forms of destructive or addictive behavior such as bullying, drug addiction or even suicide,” the First Lady said during a Rose Garden event last Monday. “I feel strongly that as adults we can and should be best at educating our children about the importance of a healthy and balanced life.”

“I’ve never seen so many powerful women in one room at the same time. Singing at the First Lady’s Luncheon was bittersweet,” said Greenwood. “We are praying for the First Lady as she recovers at Walter Reed from kidney surgery, a fantastic facility that has served our military and those that run our great Nation for many years. We are confident the First Lady is in great hands.”

The First Lady was unable to attend the luncheon due to a recent hospitalization. Second Lady of the United States, Mrs. Karen Pence, wife of the Vice President of the United States Mike Pence, gave warm remarks to the Congressional Club members and their guests.

Other distinguished guests in attendance included Mrs. Janna Ryan, wife of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mrs. Jane Roberts, wife of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Mrs. Susan Pompeo, wife of the Secretary of State, Mrs. Mary Kennedy, wife of the Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Mrs. Ginni Lamp Thomas, wife of the Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Dr. Joanna Breyer, wife of the Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Mrs. Louise Gorsuch, wife of the Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Mrs. Mary Sessions, wife of the Attorney General, Mrs. Lolita Zinke, wife of the Secretary of the Interior, Mrs. Hilary Geary Ross, wife of the Secretary of Commerce, Mrs. Jan Acosta, wife of the Secretary of Labor, Mrs. Jennifer Azar, wife of the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Mrs. Candy Carson, wife of the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Mrs. Candy Carson, wife of the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, The Honorable Elaine Chao, Secretary of Transportation and wife of the Majority Leader of the United States Senate, and Mr. Paul Pelosi, husband of the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives.
