With Martyn Lucas rocking the keyboards during a virtual concert on Aug. 20, supporters and friends of Vogel Alcove sang, danced, and raised money.
Their cause: to provide therapeutic early childhood services, school-age programs, and family support services for homeless children ages 6 weeks to 12 years old and their families.
Lucas, a former Phantom of the Opera, is known as the World Piano Man.
“His contagious energy and unique styles of singing had everyone smiling, sharing conversations and singing along,” said Karen Hughes, president and CEO, Vogel Alcove.
Sponsored by Santander Consumer USA, donations brought in song requests as the evening began with a request for “You’ve Got a Friend In Me,” and rocked on with Elton John’s “Crocodile Rock,” Billy Joel’s “Movin’ Out,” and a sing-along of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody “
Regina Bruce prevailed in the auction of a guitar signed by Jon Bon Jovi but then donated it back, and a silent bidder scooped it up.
