Chelsea Herbert attended a Michael Bubl e concert holding a sign that said Let me sing with you, Mr. Buble. It is something Herbert says she has wanted to do since she was in high school. Her desire came true when Buble saw the sign and invited her up on stage, according to an NBC report on Friday. Hebert, 21, attended the concert on Wednesday night at Hartfords XL Center. Having fortunately gotten a seat close to the stage, she made her sign and took it to the concert. Not only did Buble see the sign and invite her up on stage, but he let her pick the song they would sing. She chose Feeling Good, a song she said she had practiced for days before the concert just in case Buble would invite her to sing with him. The performance was tremendous with the surprisingly great voice of Herbert. The event turned out so well, in fact, that many have been skeptical of the incident being planted by Buble and his people. However, Herbert swears that the entire episode was spontaneous. Though Herbert has had no professional training, she has experience as having sung in her high schools South Windsor High Schools Show Choir and now performs as a member of Southern Connecticut State Universitys Jubilee Gospel Choir. She is currently a senior at SCSU, majoring in psychology, but would love to have a career involving her God-given musical talent. She said she prays that this can turn into something for her musical career.
Lionel Richie concert review: Endless hits at the Patriot Center
Richie, 64, didnt even pretend he was going to play anything new on the fifth stop of his month-long All The Hits All Night Long tour. I am prepared to sing every song I can remember, he announced smoothly. The good news is, were going to sing all the songs. The bad news is, I hope I can remember them. Looking for things to do? Select one or more criteria to search Kid-friendly Get ideas Richies been crooning the same songs for so long Penny Lover, Truly, Ballerina Girl, Lady that he could probably sing them in his sleep. The same could be said of the members of the predominantly middle-aged crowd. We have known each other a long time, he cooed onstage, flashing a big smile at the ladies in the front row who werent seat-sharing but instead jumping up and down and shrieking. Richie instructed people in the arena to go back in time and reminisce about when they first heard his songs, and where you were, what you were doing and who you were doing it with. From the dreamy looks on many peoples faces, those were some happy memories. What could have been an incredibly sleepy affair with so many slow love songs actually zoomed by, as Richie basked in his former glory, strolling back and forth across the stage, pausing to tell the history of some of his (and the Commodores) most well-known hits, including Still, Stuck On You and Three Times a Lady. Richies voice, strained at some points, still provided enough power for bursts of energy for Dancing on the Ceiling and the island-themed smash All Night Long. Although it was a little unsettling to see Richie (whos Grandpa Lionel now, he reminded everyone, although his grandkids call him Pop Pop) make the hourglass-figure hand motions with Brick House. But Richie embraced the cheesiness, with some especially awkward dancing: lots of hip swivels and pointing of index fingers in the air. Easily winded, he caught his breath a couple times as he soaked in the screams from the audience and wiped the sweat from his forehead with a small towel. No mention was made of his recent return to pop-culture relevance with last years Tuskegee , a compilation of countrified versions of his songs featuring guest stars that include Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean. It was his first No.
