The Broadway legend had a special treat for the press by performing for the very first time, her slow and soulful rendition of A-ha's 80s classic, 'Take On Me.' This song was a special request, and is not included in the lineup of performances for her anniversary concert, so this was a very special experience for the media this afternooon. Don't worry though -- we got to film the entire performance in full!
