  1. Just wondering how everyone was able to stay seated after that!!!???

  2. Good question!

    Perhaps it isn’t protocol to give standing ovations at the White House (based on the classical concert tradition).

  3. They did stand at the end of the concert, but were pretty much prompted by the host to do it then.

  4. When was this? That was an awesome perfomance of an awesome song. Couple with an incredible location, I might add! 🙂

  5. I think it may have been 2001.

  6. It’s so funny that you posted this! I just watched this on YouTube at random the other day. It’s such a stirring performance. I love it!

  7. Protocol is to only stand when the President stands.
    If he would have stood, they all would have.

  8. I remember watching this on TV live when I was like 8 or 9. GVB has always been my dad’s favorite group, and their definitely on my top 5 list. I haven’t seen this clip in ages, but every time David Phelps does his thing, I always get chillbumps!!! He’s got to be the best tenor in the world, at least in my book. Wes Hampton is good, but nobody can replace Phelps entirely.
