Both former president Bill Clinton and actress Liza Minnelli were in attendance at the memorial service for the late composer Marvin Hamlisch on Tuesday in New York. Hamlisch died in Los Angeles at the age of 68 earlier this month.
Clinton and Minnelli were joined by a host of celebrity guests at the event including ex-Yankee manager Joe Torre, Kelli O'Hara, Ann-Margret, Raul Esparza, Robert Klein, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Leslie Uggams, Richard Gere, Tony Danza, and Kathie Lee Gifford along with Diane Sawyer and her husband Mike Nichols.
President Clinton spoke to the group touting Marvin's most rare combination of qualities: "Genius is rare enough, but a good-hearted genius is rarer still. A good-hearted, humble and hilarious genius is almost unheard of."
