    Wow! Silver Spring will be ALIVE with the sound of music!I’ve love to hear you sing “If He Walked Into My Life”. Or the song you did in “Eligies”. I don’t know the name but it was POWERFUL and wonderful.

  2. rabbit1970

    Howabout “You Can’t Get A Man WIth A Gun,” “Heat Wave,” “Hostess With The Mostess,” “I Love Paris,” or a duet with either Sherri or Jane like “Well, Did You Evah?” or “I Could Always Go To You”
