"My parent's record collection was a big influence on me which included Nat King Cole, Harry Belefonte, Stachmo, Al Jolson, Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne, Sammy Davis Jr and Elvis. I was probably the only five year old that could sing 'Swanee' and 'California Here I Come' note for note in kindergarten."
"The entire First Night event was great and I felt Norman Foote’s show in Village Square was the highlight of the evening. I had so much fun watching him work his magic with the crowd. Parents. teenagers, and young adults were all having a blast. Everyone was connected through the performance, it was really special."

Both young and old alike had a great time. Several of us laughed so hard we cried. Having no intermission worked well for this performance .

"Just wanted to thank Norman for making last night such a great experience for all those children and their parents. How wonderful to see different communities of children get together with one goal - of making music together ~
