The Difference
  • Kenny Chesney performed a thrilling set at the Decade of Difference concert at the Hollywood Bowl on October 15, starting with his 2010 hit "Somewhere With You." Although the song's lyrics are dark — Chesney says it's a "tortured soul" song -- the vibe is very reminiscent of the Bee Gees of the 1970s. Chesney also fired up a rendition of "Beer in Mexico," which he wrote for another birthday party — that of iconic rocker Sammy Hagar. Finally, Chesney welcomed Grace Potter to the stage for their duet, "You and Tequila." For Chesney, the song was somewhat of a callback to an Eagles song he heard while driving along the Pacific Coast Highway a few years ago. Even though he and Potter have completely different backgrounds — Chesney is from Tennessee and Potter is from Vermont — the harmony is stirring.

  • Stevie Wonder opened A Decade of Difference concert at the Hollywood Bowl on October 15 with a stirring rendition of "Sir Duke," from his 1976 album "Songs in the Key of Life." The song is a tribute to jazz musician Duke Ellington, one of the greats who influenced Wonder's career, but it serves as an appreciation to all of those who, like former President Clinton, made a positive difference to others. Wonder also performed his 1972 smash hit, "Superstition." The song is immediately recognizable for its beat, lyrics, and acoustics, and it has been heard or covered everywhere from AC/DC concerts to "Sesame Street." "Superstition" got the crowd at the Hollywood Bowl revved up for the following performers, but it also served as a look back at one of the most popular songs of Bill Clinton's lifetime.

  • Chelsea Clinton shares onstage moment with father

    When former President Bill Clinton came onstage to give his thanks during his foundation's anniversary concert, it wasn't a celebrity or even his wife, Hillary Clinton, who introduced him, but his daughter, Chelsea.

    As introductions went, hers was short. "Every day, my father truly wakes up and thinks about how he can make a difference in the world," she said. "how he can help other Gagas live the American Dream, and as he frequently says, he can help kids around the world have a story, because he got to have a heck of a story." What was more telling was that Chelsea stepped into that public role, however brief.

    As much as Bill and Hillary Clinton embraced the public life, they fiercely sheltered their only daughter as much as possible from its glare. Now it seems Chelsea's ready to follow their path -- not necessarily into politics but into the public eye. So far, she seems ready for the role, thanks to both her father and mother.
