Sir Paul sang at New York's famed Carnegie Hall this evening! A surprise concert? No, Sir Paul joined other celebrities at a birthday party for actor Dudley Moore and joined thousands of enthusiastic audience members who sang Happy Birthday to him at the close of the three and a half hour all-star program. It was reported that: "Sir Paul was going to perform on stage but then decided against it. He wanted to enjoy the evening and celebrate Dudley just by being there. He felt that if he had taken the stage, the spotlight would not have been focused on Dudley." Dudley Moore suffers from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy an incurable and debilitating form of Parkinson's Disease. The Carnegie Hall celebration was held to pay tribute to him and to raise funds for PSP research.
