No need to look any further for Frank Sinatra...he is alive and well, living in Gilbert Gauthier! LOL Mr. Gauthier and his son showed up at the event location in Ladera Ranch April 5th at 3:30 to set up for the 50th anniversary party set to begin at 6pm. We were still working on the table settings outside when they began their sound check. WE WERE IN AWE! I swear Frank Sinatra was in the backyard with us. We (my friend who was hosting and others helping) could not believe our ears! We had goosebumps...he was SOOO GOOD! The guests of honor were arriving at 5:30 so Frank snuck out and then returned in full tux, ready to go at 7pm. Meanwhile, his son treated all the guests to wonderful music selection very (Andre Bocelli, etc..) as our guests arrived. Once dinner was underway, Frank made his grand appearance before the guests of honor. They were overwhelmed! We literally had Frank Sinatra singing to the Sicilian couple married 50 years. There were many tears. Frank continued to entertain us throughout the evening with every Sinatra song made, while mingling throughout the tables and throwing in genuine funny side comments just like Sinatra did! It was AMAZING. About 9pm, the 10yr old grandaughter of the anniversary couple performed a solo Disney song (she will be a big star one day) for the crowd. When she was finished, Mr. Gauthier asked her to join him for a few more songs...and the 2 of them sang together, working the crowd as if they had performed together forever! Mr. Gauthier was very sweet and treated this little girl with love and respect. The crowd went NUTS! We didn't want the evening to end. Frank continued with a few more songs and once the majority of the crowd left, he and his son packed it up (this was after midnight!!!).
If you are looking for THE Frank Sinatra....I HIGHLY recommend Gilbert Gauthier! Absolutely amazing....worth every single penny and more. LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!
