Barry Manilow Concert ~ Reading, Pennsylvania September 6,2012

On September 6, 2012 my daughter Jamiann and  I attended a Barry Manilow Concert at the Sovereign Center in Reading, PA.  Last night we got to experience the show with both of Jamiann's daughters. The eldest is the same age Jami was when she first saw Barry in concert.  

Jamiann has been a fan since she was 9 years old when she first saw him in concert at the Stabler Arena with my sister Irene who won the tickets, a limo ride to the concert, and each received a long stem rose. 

 Together Jami and I have seen him numerous times including live on the Rosie O'Donnell Show, The View, Good Morning America, The Today Show, and two tapings of live concerts for television while in Nashville, TN. 

We had a great time! Barry' s voice was never better! At the end of the concert we ran into several of our longtime friends from the Manilow fan clubs.  The last time I had seen Faye and Lynn was at Jamiann's wedding over ten years ago.  It was so good to see them!

 The Grand Finale of two songs, Copacabana, and I Write The Songs.

Barry thanked the many fans who attended last night that brought a donated musical instrument for the Manilow Music Project  Last year, in response to the needs of public schools and their severely depleted music programs, Barry gathered some friends and formed The Manilow Music Project as part of his non-profit, Manilow Fund for Health and Hope. The mission statement of the Project highlights the importance of music programs in U.S. schools and donates instruments and materials to school music programs.
