During meal times, Shirley was often heard talking about her favorite singer, Damon, from the Platters. She brought this to our attention and asked if there was a way Damon could come sing for the whole community.
We contacted Damon from the Platters and he said he would be honored to have Shirley announce him and perform at our community. We made a banner that read, Shirley announcing Damon from The Platters. We also set up a table right in the front for Shirley and her daughter to enjoy the show.
On May 16th, 2013, Damon came and over forty residents came out to enjoy the experience with Shirley. At the very end, Damon took Shirleys hand and dedicated a song to her and sang it as if they were the only two people in the room. Words could not describe the look on Shirley's face! I feel this was a dream come true for Shirley and it was a great success!! Shirley and her lady friends still speak of that moment.
