On March 9, Pat Paternoster calmly sang the Kris Kristofferson hit “Help Me Make It Through the Night” to a room packed with anxious karaoke singers. He then encouraged first-time singer Elizabeth Butterfield to duet with him.
Among the evening’s most pleasing duets were Charla Gae and Tosca Lies and Vinny Correnti and Susan Kelleghan.
Several folks returned to karaoke after a long hiatus. Vickie Van Ert did “Let It Be Me,” while Walter Piippo sang a fine “Beyond the Sea.” And Sally Glausser shared a cheerful “It Might as Well be Spring.”
Former resident Ray Barnum visited to lend his trained voice to “Unchained Melody.” He and Bob Barnum also teamed up on several selections.
Julie Nulad exuded confidence on “You Don’t Know Me,” as did Nina Todorov on “My Melody of Love.” Everyone is encouraged to to refine their song selections at karaoke practice sessions on Mondays from 1-3 p.m. in Clubhouse 6. Then continue the fun at the karaoke parties every Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in Clubhouse 1. All LWers are welcome to sing or sit back and enjoy a little music with neighbors and friends.
