A great big thank you to Kelly Carey, LMA parent and Grand Rapids based singer extraordinaire, for volunteering again for a 2018 Scholarship Benefit Concert.
2017 Rise! Concert
Last year's theme was Rise! and featured songs by artists who overcame challenges just as our students work to overcome their learning and/or attention issues everyday. Artists like John Lennon. We have four segments of last years' concert so, we'll start out our pre-concert series of highlights with the mellow sounds of the Beatles tune Blackbird.
As Kelly states at the end of this gorgeous performance, "enough of this sappy stuff. Let's get funky!". This year's concert is Funkytown: Music of the 70's by The Hip Pocket, the Midwest's Premier Funk/R&B Horn Band, along with special guest Kelly Carey on Tuesday, June 5 at 7 pm at the Wege Center at Aquinas College (cocktail hour at 6 pm).
Stay tuned for more information on tickets, sponsorship and/or volunteer opportunities!
