Jeanine McDonnell records a CD

Anita Kumar

Is Jeanine McDonnell considering a singing career?

The eldest daughter of Gov. Bob McDonnell often sang on the campaign trail last year. On Saturday, she belted out the Star Spangled Banner at her father's inauguration. Hours later, at the inaugural ball, she sang "You're Still the One" while her parents danced on stage.

As a keepsake, the 4,000 tuxedo- and ballgown-wearing guests at the Greater Richmond Convention Center received a copy of a CD that Jeanine recorded entitled "That's My Dad!" The 11 songs include Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" from the "Titanic" soundtrack
Bette Midler's "Wind Beneath My Wings" and Carrie Underwood's "Jesus, Take The Wheel."

Her mother, Maureen, closed the First Lady's Luncheon at the Omni Richmond Hotel last Sunday with a recorded version of Jeanine singing Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA."

The 28-year-old Iraq war Army veteran works as a project manager at SAIC. But could she possibly be interested in changing giving singing a shot professionally?

While receiving guests at the governor's mansion Sunday, Jeanine autographed a copy of the disk for one of the hundreds of well-wishers who waited in line to greet the governor and his family in their new home for the next four years.

Asked whether she planned to pursue a professional singing career, Jeanine told our colleague Freddy Kunkle that said she didn't think so. "'This is enough for me," she said.

That is an incredibly schiozphrenic list of songs.

Does this look like a question of copyright infringements.
