Songs for the Cure Talent Showcase and Benefit Concert Features Local Performers

July 13, 2008

"Songs for the Cure" is a Talent Showcase and Benefit Concert featuring six young talented singers ages 17-21 from four different local communities. The brainchild of Mequon musician, music director and voice teacher Jane Lukic, this afternoon of great performances will be held at the Eagles Club - Rave Stage - on Saturday July 19th at 3:00 p.m.

All six performers are students of Lukic, who strongly believes that with talent comes the responsibilty to use that gift to help others in need. "I had an idea last fall that people should hear these incredible young singers. They have all had lead roles in their high school productions and love to perform. It has been my position for many years that anyone with this kind of talent should use their abilities to try and make the world a better place. When I approached them about putting together this show, I asked them to choose a charity to sing for. We have six local charities coming to this event, each with a representative or two and tables of information. We have had tremendous fun in creating this show, which features great music ranging from classical to contemporary musical theater pieces as well as a pop and folk song here and there."

Musical theater at The Rave? Eagles Club Owner Leslie West didn't skip a beat when Lukic approached her looking for an exciting venue for her singers. According to West, "I like to use our space to showcase local talent of all kinds. This is a great opportunity to bring family and friends together in support of young talent and to give these singers a profession performance experience on a large stage, complete with lighting and sound." Exactly what Lukic was looking for!

The performers include Stephanie Black, Terry Lewis and Cameron Smith, all of Mequon, as well as Hannah Richtman of Whitefish Bay, Joel Rathman of Franklin, and Monica Kletti of Germantown. Milwaukee favorite Dan Dance will be at the piano. The charity groups selected are: ABCD(After Breast Cancer Diagnosis); Children's Hospital NeoNatal ICU; Rett's Syndrome Foundaton; Huntington's Disease Society; Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Wisconsin AIDS Fund. All proceeds will be divided equally. Requested donations are $25 ($15 Seniors and Students) at the door beginning at 2:30p.m. A reception will follow. The Eagles Club is located at 2401 W. Wisconsin Ave in Milwaukee.
