Tonight was the annual talent show at the Unity Church of the South Bay and the finale featured the St. Mary Chorus which started very sweet with "My God."
I can't even remember what the next two numbers were, but believe me, these ladies became their rendition of "Sister Act." Seems one woman came up with this idea because she always wanted to play Whoopee Goldberg's part. But wouldn't you know it? She called in sick. The rest of the chorus, however, took up the slack and brought the house down.
The main reason I wanted to go, however, was to hear my long-time friend Rick, who turns 80 this fall, along with another friend Charla, present their rendition of Gene Krupa's "Swing, Swing, Swing."
There were several performances tonight including some with the church kids and I was so touched how easy it was to be totally entertained right in my hometown without having to pay big concert ticket prices. What fun we had.
