“I’m Tom Brady’s best friend,” joked David Daniels. “I’m sure he’d love to read that!”
OK, the world’s leading countertenor isn’t really Brady’s bud.
“But I did meet him,” Daniels continued. “It was when I sang (Handel’s) `Messiah’ in Ann Arbor.”
Brady was quarterback for the University of Michigan football team when Daniels, now 38, was a graduate student there.
“A lot of times the football players would come to concerts – they were always trying to enlighten them to the music world, arts and culture – and he came backstage and I got to shake his hand,” Daniels recalled. “If you asked him, he might remember me as this guy who sang like a woman.”
