Associated Press Recognizes Hinckley Birthday & Celebration
(Mormon Church Leader Turns 90)
Associated Press 26Jun00 N2

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley's Birthday part was recognized in newspapers across the US that carried a report of Friday nights's "Evening of Celebration" in the LDS Church's Conference Center. Noting that the audience and performers joined to sing "Happy Birthday" to President Hinckley at the end of the performance, the Associated Press wrote, "'Happy Birthday' sounds pretty impressive when sung by 21,000 people and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir."

The Associated Press also noted that Hinckley was wearing leis of pink and white flowers over his tuxedo when he emerged for the performance, greeting the standing-room-only audience at the Conference Center Friday.
