We had a ball with Central Harlem this week! The session was filled with seniors Zooming in from their homes and the dining room of Central Harlem.
Brandon Dennis and Brian London of Gibby’s Joint started us off with a stunning “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.” We were also joined by the cast of “White Christmas” currently performing at the Fulton Theatre, who performed some songs and dances from their show! Cast members Will Ray and Hanley Smith performed a swoon worthy duet of “How Far/You’ve Done Me Wrong.”
Luke Hawkins followed with some incredible tap moves and an Elvis impression. We were put in the Christmas mood by so many beautiful holiday songs. We also snuck in some non-holiday songs, including “If I Love You,” “Let’s Give Them Something To Talk About,” and “With A Little Help From My Friends.”
Our friends at Central Harlem are full of joy, and it is truly such a pleasure to gather with them for a lively Sing For Your Seniors afternoon. At the end of our session our seniors said “You really lifted our spirits!” “I’m just so happy!” “You are diamonds in the rough, and you shine so bright!”
