Tradition Welcomes Virtuoso to Sing for Children
When the singer known as “America’s Tenor” was asked to perform for a cause that supports child victims of abuse and neglect, his answer was swift and enthusiastic. RCA recording artist Michael Amante, whose credits include lead roles in Broadway classics like West Side Story, Grease, and Jesus Christ Superstar, brings his extraordinary talent to Tradition’s intimate Town Hall setting on Friday, November 9, 2018 for a one-night-only concert benefiting children in foster care. As that date marks the start of Veterans Day weekend, Amante will also pay homage to our veterans of foreign wars.
“We are deeply grateful to the Port St. Lucie Newcomers Club for sponsoring this rare opportunity to locally experience one of Michael’s concerts,” said Bob Perry, President of the evening’s beneficiary, Voices for Children. “Often our kids in foster care have very little and expect even less. We want them to know there are people who care, that they are no different from others, and that they are worthy.”
Voices for Children is in its sixth year of supporting the Guardian ad Litem Program of the 19th Judicial Circuit, dedicated to advocating for the best interests of children under court supervision in the pursuit of a safe, permanent home.
On hearing Michael Amante sing for the first time, Tony Bennett was moved to exclaim, “That’s the most beautiful singing I’ve heard in years.” Though Amante’s concert tickets typically command higher prices, this event is being offered at a reduced price of $30. While publicity for the concert is now launching, over 300 of the 400 available seats quickly sold through word of mouth. Remaining tickets can be purchased through Roz Vanderhoof (772-345-3440, or via email, firstname.lastname@example.org) on a first come, first serve basis.
