A Night to Shine with Diamond and Yates in Amarillo
Have you been out to the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts? If you have you know how great it is to get to hear a concert there. The sound is fantastic. It's something you will not soon forget.
So anytime I see anything about a concert there I try to go. Even bonus points if the show will not only be fabulous but will also help out a great cause. Case in point when my buddy, Dean Yates, sent me a text message the other day.
I have seen him play before. He is all over town. I have seen him with his whole band, Insufficient Funds, and I have seen him perform with just Mary Lyn Halley. I am telling you they always put on a great show.
So he was telling me about his latest project. Oh, and how much he loves Neil Diamond. I have a special place in my heart for his song "Heartlight". Yes, I loved E.T. but the record store near my house in Chicago started calling me the Heartlight girl because I was trying to get a copy of the forty-five. I ended up being successful.
Oh and who hasn't jammed along to "Sweet Caroline"? We all screamed at the top of our lungs to that one. I could go on and on. So when Dean told me about this show with a bunch of his musical friends I knew this was going to be special.
Not only will it be a great show but the show is going to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Amarillo. So a great show and a cause. Dean got a bunch of his musician friends to help him.
This is going to be a good one.
