DEAR READERS:  
 
 
OPEN CALL ENTRIES ANNOUNCED,
DO YOU HAVE YOUR DVD TO SUBMIT?
I know many of our singers would like to submit an entry for next year's competition and may need a DVD to send in before the January 5, 2015 deadline.

I will bring my digital video camera to Applause Wednesdays on DECEMBER 17th ONLY. Joel will be there so bring 2 of your best songs that you've worked on with him before and I will film your performance and copy it on a DVD for you to submit for OPEN CALL. Please read the rules in the notice in this column below in the McCALLUM THEATER box. We are asking that you make a special contribution to the "Appreciation Jar" for this extra service that Joel and I will split.

CALLING ALL CABARET SINGERS:
Your voices and personalities are needed for "Caroling For A Cause" on Sunday, December 21st. Meet up at THREESIXTY NORTH at 4:30 PM for Hot Chocolate, then sing and stroll down Palm Canyon Drive with stops at local establishments seeking donations for WELL IN THE DESERT. Dress in your Holiday Attire - song sheets will be provided. 
WHAT HAPPENED AT  
APPLAUSE WEDNESDAYS LAST WEEK: 
We once again had WAYNE ABRAVANEL filling in for JOEL BAKER and we had a great crowd along with some wonderful singers who did 2 songs the first time around and those who stayed got to do 3 including DONNY TEETERS doing "A Time For Love", "Beseme Mucho" & "Since If Fell For You", then a wonderful new singer who just moved here from Seattle named DESERA CHARAT doing "Cry Me A River" & "On A Clear Day", RAFE CORRELL singing "So Nice To Come Home To" & "Why Did I Choose You", then BETH FORMELOZA with "When The Rain Come Out", "Birth Of The Blues" & "Mack The Knife", followed of course by FERDIE FORMELOZA with "I Wish You Love", All The Way" & "Blue Christmas" and LINDSAY OUELLETTE gave us "Merry Christmas Darling" & "The Christmas Song", then it was RUSS ROOF doing "I Left My Heart In San Francisco" & "My Way", and afterwards we had DOUG GRAHAM with "Anthem" & "Mi Mancherai" and next it was PAT MCCANN to sing "I Only Have Eyes For You", "A House Is Not A Home" & Sentemtal Journey", it was nice having GEORGE LEWIS back and singing "Fools Rush In" & "The World Is Mine", then also from Seattle we had TERRY GALLAGHER is now a part-timer, singing "The Heart Will Go On", "Sister" & "When You're Good To Mamma", next was MARGE HARRIS with "Roll Out The Holly", "Goody Goody" and a duet of "Winter Wonderland" with LARRY HARRIS, who also sang a solo with "Nice And Easy" and our final singer was COURT GRAVES to sing "Prisoner Of Love", "Till There Was You", & "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". And that was it for another APPLAUSE WEDNESDAYS. As far as I know we will be off next week on the 24th as the Threesixty North will be closed so their staff may spend the day with family and friends. Then on the 31st, unless there is a last minute change we will be off then as well. So come out this week, Joel will be back and we'd love to see you.

Reservations are always welcome. See you Wednesday. 

PS: WE NEED MORE FACE BOOK LIKES ON THE
THREESIXTY NORTH PAGE - PLEASE HELP US AND      
 
WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S ON SATURDAY: 
Wow, contrary to last week, it was packed with a great audience and lots and lots of fabulous singers who each did 2 songs there first time through the list and those who stays got to do 3 & 4 songs. First up, the returning BILL CLIFFORD who was a big hit singing  "I've Got The World On A String" & "A Simple Christmas Wish", then we had DEANNE CONTE back again and singing "Begin The Begine" & led us all for "Silent Night", and THOM McMorris who we have not seen in a while so I was great to have him with us to sing "Zing Went The Strings" & "Learning The Blues", DESERA CHARAT who you remember from Wednesday, came and sang "All That Jazz", "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", "Body And Soul" & "Misty", then we had RAFE CORRELL with "Sway", "I Want To Be Around", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", and MARGE HARRIS did a real performance with "Wouldn't It Be Loverly" and LARRY HARRIS with "Nice And Easy" and together gave us "Winter Wonderland", another one would gave a showstopping performance was ROSANNE HOPKINS with "Hernando's Hideaway", "Just No Time At All", & "La Vien Rose" followed by JIGGS GALLGHER, who lives in the Date Palm Country Club and came to sing for the first time doing "The Christmas Song". Next we had TERRY GALLAGHER who also has a place nearby, singing "Feeling Good", "A Piece Of Sky", "Mack The Knife" & "I Like The Way You Feel", we also had ART there to sing "My Way" & "For Once In My Life" along with some news about a surgery he would be having on Monday (today) so we wish him a speedy recovery. And once again, our final singer of the night was COURT GRAVES who did "Merry Christmas Darling", "Till There Was You", "On The Street Where You Live" & "Some Times A Day Goes By" - from WOMAN OF THE YEAR - look for a couple more references to this song and show in this week's VIDEOS. And that was another great show!

See you this Saturday....

ALEX VARDEN

THE MAGIC OF GRATITUDE

 

When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears. (Author Unknown)

* * *

The power of gratitude comes not from just saying you're thankful, but from living your thankfulness. Being thankful for your life means doing something beautiful and meaningful with it.

A life that taps into the awesome power of gratitude is a life that's fully lived. Remind yourself again and again how precious your life is, and live each day to give it the fulfillment it deserves.

In ways large and small, with all kinds of people, in every conceivable situation, good and bad, live with sincere thankfulness, and make the magic of gratitude an everyday part of your world. :)

SAMPLE OF SONGS VIDEO

"My goodness, it is brilliant." - Koop Kooper, host, - "Cocktail Nation," Sydney, Australia

"Laura Ainsworth has not only met the incredible standard set by her debut recording but surpassed it..."  - Eric Harabadian, Jazz Inside

"Ainsworth segues in and out of moody ladies in love, like those in a Barbara Stanwyck film festival...Whether hilarious or heartfelt, Ainsworth packs a pistol & the goods & should make waves with this new release." - John Hoglund, Cabaret Scenes

"Reminiscent of those classic Verve, Capitol or Columbia albums of the 1950's, but equally, it is so vintage 2013, you just need to grab a copy and listen." - Richard Irvine, 87.7-FM

"Laura Ainsworth is an exceptional singer, full of grace and color in her interpretations. Her ability to express the elements of the most classic jazz is incomparable; she is able to subtly display sensuality, darkness, romanticism, naughtiness, and feeling. 'Necessary Evil' is a smart & brilliant contribution to the world jazz scene"  - Oscar Montagut, WorldMusicReport

"Delightful...Snazzy and jazzy...Charming and genuine... Recalls big band clubs in many a black-and-white film airing on TCM...Magically transporting to an era far gone..."
- Kevin Thomas, Dallas Voice

"As sweet-voiced as a meadowlark crossed with a hummingbird...The kind of gig Mae West would uncork champagne to and then sit back in brocade and rhinestones...
