The new year started off wet and foggy. Hopefully things will turn brighter in the days to come. We need some sunshine because there are some fun events on the horizon, one of which is Opéra Louisiane’s Sing & Swing celebrity karaoke fundraiser. It takes place Friday at the Crowne Plaza, and I’m one of this year’s acts. I’ll be singing “Hey Big Spender” so come cheer me on as I compete against Leonard Augustus, Robert Byrnes, Ruffin Rodrigue, Kyle Talbert and Stafford Wood. Get your tickets at facebook.com/OperaLouisianeBR.
