Following the Great Blackout show of 2003, the following year in the summer of 2004 Lincoln Center invited the Divine Divas back for an encore. Featured again were the Mogador band and all five dancers. There was no blackout this time, the weather was perfect, and the troupe including Ayshe enjoyed success to a standing-room-only crowd.

Dear Shamira and Artists of the Divine Divas of Oriental Bellydance Part II:

On behalf of Lincoln Center and Lincoln Center Out of Doors, congratulations on a very very successful return performance, with electricity and sound this time, in our series. We estimate that about 2,500 to 3,000 people attended this performance and responded with delight and enthusiasm to your dancing. The Mogador Band sounded excellent and provided a great background for you all. The press gave wonderful coverage--I saw the television interview, it was great!

All of us are very happy to make this performance happen at last. I know you were all pleased and happy, and the weather could not have been better.

My personal best wishes to you all for success and good health,

Jenneth Webster
