Shalva Band Performs Before Thousands at Florida Convention
The Shalva Band continued their world-wide tour with a performance before nearly 4000 attendees at the Israeli-American Council (IAC) in Hollywood, Florida. The IAC National Summit 2019 brought together a diverse group of Israeli-Americans, Jewish Americans, and Israelis for critical dialogue, and inspiring sessions.
Participating and speaking at the event were leaders in diverse fields, politicians, journalists, and entrepreneurs. The keynote speaker was President Donald Trump, who introduced the band as a “very special performance.” Following President Trump’s remarks, the band returned to the stage to sing Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America” to a standing ovation. In their excitement and enthusiasm, band members rushed to embrace the President and shake his hand, to which he responded in kind.
