Five days until the 13th annual Concert for Life!
I spent tonight putting some final touches on some of the songs for this year’s show. I have a few rehearsals this week and a big group practice on Saturday night. Things are coming together and it promises to be an exciting afternoon. I have several new songs on the playlist and some old tunes that will take you all the way back to 1998!
I’m so grateful to once again have an outstanding cast of musicians to help me entertain those in the audience. Some familiar faces from past year — Chris, Chad, Rob, Amy, Beth, Emily and Kelly — and some new faces — Ben, Joe and Laura. We also have the St. Paul the Apostle choir joining us for two songs. They always do such a great job.
I was with the Warren FBLA students a couple of weeks ago as they busied themselves with all things CFL-related, including ticket sales, raffle and silent auction phone calls, other concert logistics, signage, etc. They’ve spent the past few months working hard to put together another amazing show.
If you are free on Sunday afternoon, please consider joining us. We’ve raised $356,000 for the American Cancer Society since 2001. With your help, we can inch ever closer to $400,000. I hope to see you there!
