MARTINA MCBRIDE TO HEADLINE WAKEMED FOUNDATION APPRECIATION GALA

It's going to be a special night as we celebrate the difference WAKEMED is making in the Triangle community.  And to cap it off attendees will enjoy a live performance by Country Superstar Martina McMride as she performs her classic hits and reveals new music from her coming album, Eleven.

Country music singer, songwriter and record producer McBride has sold millions of albums and has 20 top-10 hits and six number one smashes.  She has been awarded 14 Gold Records, nine Platinum honors, three Double Platinum Records and two Triple Platinum awards.  She has been named Female Vocalist of the Year four times by The Country Music Association and received 14 Grammy Awards.

Starbooker Presents is proud to present this wonderful artist at this year's WakeMed Foundation Gala!

DUNCAN FAURE

duncan stripe7 1  Duncan Faure continues to make his special brand of music having just released another in a series of solo albums.  Duncan Faure "4" was released by July 15 by JemiBlue.com and contains four fantastic songs:  "The Day That I Found Love"; "Bad Dog"; "Back To The Day"; and "Lies And Promises".  

Previously Faure released "Machine From The Other Side" which contained the never before recorded "Tennessee" written by John Lennon, and a re-released version of Lennon's "Imagine."  Yoko and Sean Lennon gave their personal approval for both releases especially "Tennessee."

There are some other major things in the works for Faure in the near future including a potential 40th Anniversary Reunion of several of the Bay City Roller gang, but keep that under your hat for now unless you really want to rock the world again in plaid!

We are still looking at a South African tour, and perhaps a European tour in 2016.  So stay tuned for more from Faure!

ADAM TRENT

14-05-0120website-adam20trent20press20kit-1  ADAM TRENT will be the special entertainment for the January 31, 2016 YMCA of the Triangle Association Resource Center's "Winter Inning '16" to be held at the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC).

And to quote Adam Trent (actually), "Adam Trent is regarded as one of the most blah blah etc etc. Ok, you guessed it‚Ķ This is me writing this. ¬†Let‚Äôs keep this short. What comes to mind when you think of a ‚ÄúMagician‚ÄĚ?¬†I‚Äôve always thought that Magic should be entertaining first and tricky second. I don‚Äôt want people to remember just the ‚Äútricks‚ÄĚ, but¬†also the¬†laughs and the memories that were made. Strange?

I can‚Äôt remember a time in my life when I wasn‚Äôt performing. I began with birthday party shows at age 9 for kids that were older than I¬†was¬†(slightly awkward), and corporate events when I was 13 (slightly illegal). At 14 I started street performing which was¬†as¬†the¬†most¬†amazing/brutal training a performer could ever have. It taught me to build a crowd be entertaining in the worst of situations. It¬†discovered an audience‚Äôs true attention span, because they just walked away if things moved slow. At 18, I went¬†to college in Los Angeles and got a degree in Finance and Entertainment Marketing. Apart from learning that a¬†tiger would¬†be tax-deductible, I got a crash course in LA‚Äôs music and comedy scene. I realized that the most important element in a¬†show is the performer‚Äôs connection to the audience, and without that even amazing skill can fall as flat as a bad boy band. ¬†So that‚Äôs the way I approach my performance style. I'll bet that you'll ¬†feel very¬†different than¬†you¬†expected¬†to feel after a ‚ÄúMagic Show‚ÄĚ. In fact, I‚Äôll bet my reputation on it.

¬†My apologies for not writing this in the ‚Äú3rd person‚ÄĚ.¬†Here‚Äôs a spellling erorr to give this an organic feel. ¬†[Insert inspirational quote here]

 -Adam Trent"
