This chapter focuses on Nina's return to Carnegie Hall, which was as much a coronation as a concert. Undeterred by a snowstorm and blustery winds, Nina's fans filled every available seat, lined the balconies, and even spilled out onto the stage where space permitted. They got restless during a half-hour delay that Nina gamely explained was caused by the theft of Rudy's guitar. They came to attention when she went ahead without Rudy and her brother Sam, who had joined the band, while they searched for a replacement. Nina barely skipped a beat when applause announced their arrival onstage in the middle of a song. She started the evening in churchlike fashion with “Draw Me Near.”.

Keywords:   Nina, Carnegie Hall, coronation, Rudy's guitar, half-hour delay
