Currently, I reside near the Houston metro area. I travel all over Texas with a 500 watt portable PA system & will travel to other states and abroad for performances if travel expenses are met. Training in communications, voice and acting along with and my radio experience as a dee jay for a couple of classical stations was invaluable and I loved doing voice overs and radio commercials. This past year I began performing as an impersonator at the Sunburst Convention in Orlando, FL and the CIC in Las Vegas. As an entertainer available on Gigsalad I have had several gigs in 2009 from birthday parties to conventions ranging from 50 - 200 guests. Some gigs were also pro bono but only for a few such as the Sentinels of Freedom, Bay Area Chapter. I will be master of ceremonies for a luncheon and fashion show and sing Boogie Woogie Bugle boy and dedicate with Wind Beneath my Wings. I have a two octave range in singing and love singing the array of wonderful ballads and challenging songs Bette sings. I too try to sing them with intense emotion as Bette does and sometimes I can barely get through her songs because of the intense emotions it stirs. Fortunately, I sound a lot like better when I tell her jokes and sing! I have been a tribute artist for Bette for over two years working hard to perform with her mannerisms, voice and voice inflections with Soph and Ernie Jokes. I look very similar and talk like Bette I am told naturally even without trying. Book ahead today and contact me here or on my website: (link hidden)
