Earth Day Serenade from Space

I recorded Bandella’s live performance at the e.g. 7 conference this weekend. It’s a band of NASA astronauts, with Chris Hadfield currently in space (guitars, vocals, first Canadian Commander of the ISS), Micki Pettit (lead vocals), Cady Coleman (flute, 180 days in space so far) and other stars who drift into nearer-earth orbit.

 

They started with Van Morrison’s Moondance and then one I did not catch the name of.

 

I especially liked their last song, an ode by MIcki Petit to her husband Don Petit , the first astronaut to enter the SpaceX Dragon capsule in space, and the photographer of the beautiful pictures of Earth streaming by.
