Last Friday, Jake and I went to a LEJADI Charity Dinner. FIL bought a table as to support CC who was dancing as one of the backup dancers for the event. It was held at One World Hotel at Bandar Utama. The event was graced by our King and Queen and also a few other royalties. The main objective was to collect funds for a few organizations while Miss Elisa Furr was flown down from Las Vegas to give us a taste of her extraordinaire impersonation of Celine Dion and Tina Turner.
Well, I personally went there not to see Miss Elisa’s performance but to support CC and Nancy who was also dancing for Miss Elisa. The food was a 5 course menu but it was below average. Cordial drinks were only offered once per person. So, liquid was very limited that night.
“A Socially Responsible Evening with Elisa Furr”
28th November 2008, Imperial Ballroom One World Hotel
Bandar Utama, PJ, Selangor
With a list of credits that include Singer/Songwriter, Recording Artiste, MTV video dancer, international Jingle Artiset, Producer, Voice Coach and Television & Film-music Composer, Elisa Furr is widely acclaimed for her uncanny ability to also impersonate Celine Dion and Tina Turner. Elisa also reigns as one of the world’s best Celine Dion impersonators.
Experience Elisa’s awesome performance from the very first beat of music as she delivers with passion and fervor like no other performer. Backed by eight (8) Musicians, three (3) Back-up vocals and four (4) Dancers lead by the winner of Season 2 “So You Think Can Dance, Season 2 ” “Sizzling C.C” (Cecilia Yong). Elisa’s magnetic stage presence coupled to her gorgeous costumes allows her to mesmerize her audiences as only true Divas like Celine Dion, Tina Turner and Mariah Carey seem able to do.
Identify with our charitable cause, contribute from RM 280.00 upwards per pax (inclusive of Set Dinner) and make a date with us on Friday 28th November 2008. You will be amazed at how effortlessly Elisa sings from her heart, putting herself out there, baring her soul for one and all!
ME! All dolled up for the evening!
The ceiling.. it was so beautiful!
Last dish of the night @ dessert
This dessert was stated as ‘Ice-cream cake with raspberry sauce’. I didn’t see any cake nor taste the raspberry sauce. Arrgh~ even the fudge was tasteless.
I didn’t take the pictures of the other dishes because they were horrible.
Her rendition of Power of Love was powerful. I’m glad she didn’t make herself look like Celine Dion. She’s paying tribute to her, which is nice. I don’t like people who are wannabes, who wants to be someone they couldn’t possibly be.
