Foster to Participate in 5th Annual Dealing for Duchenne Charity Poker Tournament

 

 

LOS ANGELES, Calif.–(EON: Enhanced Online News)–The 5th annual Dealing for Duchenne charity poker tournament will be held on June 2, 2012 at 6:00 p.m. at the legendary Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City to raise funds to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The star-studded honorary event committee includes Joel Murray, Josh Malina, Anne Heche, James Tupper, David Foster, Seal, Paul Reiser, Parker Stevenson, Kelli Williams, Mandy Moore, Oliver Hudson, Kara DioGuardi, Clay Matthews and Michael Rappaport. Proceeds will benefit the Center for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (CDMD) at UCLA.

“We look forward to another successful Dealing for Duchenne event”

Duchenne is a lethal muscle disease that impacts one in 3,500 boys. They are usually diagnosed by the age of 5, in a wheelchair by 12 and most don’t survive their mid-20s. Duchenne parents Chris and Amy Martin and Scott and Cathy Jones are hosting the event. The evening includes a Texas Hold ‘Em tournament, auction, special live musical guest and dinner by Wolfgang Puck. Actor Joel Murray (God Bless America, The Artist) with be the master of ceremonies.

The evening will honor Josh Bohbot, who lives with Duchenne, and his parents George and Tyla. Josh is a 22-year-old UCLA student who was diagnosed with Duchenne at age 6 and began using a wheelchair at age 10. His insight, life experience, and participation with the CDMD have led the way in establishing comprehensive Duchenne care and rehabilitation and raised Duchenne awareness at UCLA. He serves as a role model on the UCLA campus and beyond, for men with Duchenne and other disabilities, redefining boundaries of independence, academics and achievement. His parents facilitated early and continued financial support, raising the first substantial gift for the CDMD at UCLA.

“We look forward to another successful Dealing for Duchenne event,” said Amy Martin, co-chair of Dealing for Duchenne. “We put our heart and soul into this event because we believe real treatments are on the horizon, and we are grateful to CureDuchenne and the CDMD at UCLA for working together to provide a place where research and translational medicine can coexist and eventually treat our children.”

Auction items include Yellowstone Club, Caddyshack Golf Trip, European Cruise, signed memorabilia, electronics, art, VIP special event/concert tickets and wine.

The ‘Hitman’ concert will be held in Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas on October 15, 2010

 

David and Charice

 

The ‘Hitman Return’ concert will be held in Mandalay Bay on October 15, 2010. It promises to be a memorable night filled with unforgettable musical numbers and entertainment that will make your Vegas trip even more meaningful. Aside from Charice and Ne-Yo, other David Foster friends who will grace the show include Seal, Martina McBride, Donna Summer, Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole, Kenny Loggins, Michael Bolton, Ruben Studdard, Earth, Wind & Fire plus some surprise guests.
According to David Foster, he will cheat a little with the Las Vegas show as he used up a lot of his catalogue for the first edition.

“For instance, this show will feature Dreamweaver, a song composed by Gary Wright, which is not in my catalogue,” said Foster. “I will definitely go deeper in earlier catalogues.”

The multi-Grammy winner—15 in all—revealed that he is very hands-on with his shows, and does not hesitate to move segments of a show around to come up with a fantastic concert.

“The arc of the show is very important, For that night, I will put everybody’s name on the board and I may move them around to see what’s the best flow,”

It’s a truly star-studded show that everyone should not miss. The concert will be recorded by Thirteen for wnet.org for PBS broadcast on Great Performances, and also will be released as a concert CD/DVD on 143/Reprise Records.

Seal: ‘Commitment’ Album Preview

 

Seal

 

Life is good for Grammy-winning, international R&B superstar Seal. Propelled by his 1994 smash “Kiss From A Rose,” the smooth-throated singer has enjoyed two decades of success (outside of his marriage to supermodel Heidi Klum, which is an achievement all its own). Seal is releasing his seventh LP, Commitment, on September 28 in U.S. (it’s already available in the rest of the world), his first collection of all-new material in two years. The album is produced by David Foster and if you’ve been a fan over the years then you know exactly what to expect: soulful lyrics, soothing instrumentation, and an experience tailor-made for the grown but still sexy crowd.
