Justin Senense sang “I Chose Right” from Baby. The highlight of the show was when Justin joined Mao with “One Second and a Million Miles” from The Bridges of Madison County. The amazing Xiaoqing (Mao) Zhang not only sings gloriously, but plays an exquisite violin.

Marya Coburn is like a producer and mother to these young artists. Marya was a successful film and TV actress with Frank Sinatra, Jon Voight, Robert Conrad, Yul Brenner and more. She was a dancer with Bob Fosse and was in the show Sweet Charity. Kissed by Elvis Presley in the film “Stay Away Joe”, Marya discovered singing late in life and entertained us all with “New York New York.”

As the night ended Charlie was back with “On The Street Where You Live”, as the cast joined in to show their “L-O-V-E.” 

A good time was had by all as this highly entertaining show introduced us to the stars of the future.
