Our first show of the new year! We appeared at West Haven VA
Hospital in honor of Salute to Veterans Week, which is always
the week of Valentine's. Nick DeSerbo of CT AMVETS Post
9 was instrumental in helping us coordinate today's show.
They were also there with pizza, dessert and BINGO for the
Chelsea's Little Sister - Tonya, Chelsea, Sherry, Jenn, Amanda, Stacy,
Emily and Kimberly
Stacy and Kimberly introduce the newest members and the special guest performers for today's show.
Kimberly and Stacy perform an old favorite - the Andrew Sisters medley.
It has some of their best known songs including, Boogie
Woogie Bugle Boy, Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree, Bei Meir
Bist Du Schoen, and Apple Blossom Time.
The audience always enjoys this medley and they sing along to prove it!
As Kimberly sings the ballad Apple Blossom Time,
she picks an old friend from CT AMVETS Post 9 to dance with.
He was a great dancer and
smooth on his feet. But, alas, she had to return him to
his wife and continue with the show!
One of our newest Glory Girls, Jenn, came out next for a
solo performance. The audience enjoyed her performance.
Kimberly and Stacy returned for the American medley in their red,
white and blue sparkle star shirts.
Our first featured solo performer was Chelsea. She brought
a little bit of country flair to our show with Honey,
I'm Home by Shania Twain. She packs a big voice in a
little body and the Veterans loved her!
Our next featured solo performer was Sherry. She wowed the
audience with her beautiful voice. She presented Some
Enchanted Evening from South Pacific. Sherry
had also performed the National Anthem at the beginning
of our show.
Stacy and Kimberly returned to the stage to bring that Motown
sound to our friends.
They were singing and clapping along to many famous tunes.
Our next featured solo performer brought a different spin
to our audience - literally! Emily performed her award winning gymnastic routine to music
Our next Glory Girl is Amanda. She wowed the audience with
her rendition of Linda Eder's Big Time.
Stacy and Kimberly's next medley boasts over 20 songs in
under 6 minutes and features fast songs and catchy choreography!
The Veterans usually have a great time trying to name them
all afterwards and today was no exception!
Kimberly returned to the stage for one last solo before
we ended our show. In honor of Salute to Veterans Week and
Valentine's Day, she performed the Linda Eder hit I'm
Afraid This Must Be Love. She certainly had many Veteran
Valentine's this day!
The show ended with The Glory Girls performing God Bless
The U.S.A. to honor our Servicewomen and Servicemen
and to say THANK YOU! We also thanked the West Haven VA
and their staff, Nick DeSerbo and the CT AMVETS of Post
9 for all their help in coordinating today's efforts.
