Annette had a pretty lifestyle-altering change this week. In the span of a week, she went from stay-at-home mom to a background singer/ soloist for the Wayne Newton Show. Really! One of our dear friends is Marc Atkinson, Musical Director for the Wayne Newton show, and one of Annette's biggest fans. He has been talking about this for a couple of years, but this week it came about. Last night Annette sang in her first concert, in Pendleton, Oregon, at a sold-out show, and had a featured solo. She sang Martina McBride's "Valentine," and had a very good reception. Word from Marc was that Wayne was very pleased, and so Annette is looking forward to the next concert in Florida, this Sunday, although being away from the kids is still really hard. I'll keep you posted on what's going on. Only is Vegas!
