Martina McBride, Naomi Judd Sing “Happy Birthday” for Maya Angelou

Martina McBride and Naomi Judd sang “Happy Birthday” to Maya Angelou at the poet’s home on Thursday (May 20) in Winston-Salem, N.C. Angelou hosted a small gathering in her backyard garden to belatedly celebrate her 82nd birthday, which was April 4. The party was also attended by hip-hop artist and actor Common and film director Lee Daniels. Angelou is expected to release a new cookbook, Great Food All Day Long, later this year. A country fan, she also appeared in a pre-taped segment on ACM Presents: Brooks & Dunn — The Last Rodeo which aired Sunday night (May 23) on CBS.
