Vanessa Hudgens' D.C. Experience

Posted Sunday December 9, 2007 12:39 PM GMT

In town to tape the TNT Holiday special "Christmas In Washington," actress/singer Vanessa Hudgens was spotted wandering about the streets and shops of Washington DC on Saturday (December 8).

After grabbing a Starbucks and checking out the city's offerings, the High School Musical star was put to work - as she made her way to a rehearsal to practice up for the actual televised performance (being filmed later today).

Joining Vanessa at the rehearsals were fellow "Christmas In Washington" performers Katharine McPhee, Ne-Yo and Colbie Caillat.

One fan at the scene of the practice sessions told press about the experience, “I MET HER (Hudgens)!!! First time ever! She talked on her cell phone for a little bit and mentioned ‘Ashley (Tisdale?)‘. She didn’t have an actual duet with Ne-Yo, although Colbie Caillat and Ne-Yo did sing a song together. All four performers than sang a song in unison with the huge children’s choir. Her voice was SOOOOOOOOO beautiful. My dad and I were blown away. She was SOOO nice and sweet. She was great with the little kids and was joking around on stage after she performed. Totally down to earth.”
