It was great fun last weekend to be a part of honoring and performing in a benefit for a man, not only filled with huge talent, but obviously so beloved by the performing community of Las Vegas and beyond. Bill Fayne, who is probably best known as Clint Holmes musical director and founding member of the Las Vegas Tenors, had some serious medical issues recently. You can read more about his story here.
Clint Holmes & Kelly Clinton not only hosted the show, but performed as well, along with the likes of; Terry Fator, Louis Anderson, Rick Faugno(Jersey Boys), Jerry Lopez (Santa Fe & the Fat City Horns), Pete Barbutti, Robin Leach, Lance Burton, Mark Giovi (Bite at Stratosphere),Michelle Johnson, Domenick Allen (former lead singer of Foreigner) and his daughter Cayleigh Capaldi, Susan Anton, Cast members fromMenopause the Musical (Skye Dee Miles, Sandra Benton, Vida Corimbi),Lena Prima, Voce Vegas, Frankie Scinta, Las Vegas Tenors, Tina Walsh(Phantom – The Las Vegas Spectacular), Gayle Steele, Vinnie Falcone, and so many more! It was absolutely crazy to be surrounded by the talent of Las Vegas! My vocal group, Dangerous Curves, my sister, Lori and Michelle sang back up for the one and only Mark Giovi. The song was called “Young Angels” and was written by Mark and Bob Grimes. It kinda felt like we were in a rock concert!
Now, this weekend is filled with building blocks and cooking and farmers market and cleaning and well, you know, Mommyland! Maybe even a bit of rehearsing-the perfect weekend! The sun stayed out until 647pm today, it was awesome! Have a fabulous week, friends! Check me out at twitter and karenmerstikmichaels.com and dangerouscurveslasvegas.com!
