"My wife attended a concert featuring Phyllis Hyman at Blues Alley in Washington DC more than 30 years ago. Ms. Hyman finished the set and came down to have a drink at the bar. My wife walked up to her and noticed that the clasp on the back of her dress was open and the zipper was down. She mentioned it to Ms. Hyman and she said well don't just stand there, go ahead and fix it. A moment to remember for sure....."
