Sharon Sills Excites The Regulars At Desert Sage Restaurant

We were at Desert Sage again this past Tuesday to hear more from Johnny Meza, and it was great fun for everyone who was there.  There was a small group of people celebrating the birthday of a women who was a very young 91 years of age.  She was all dressed up and still drinking and dancing the night away. I have to say again, one of the joys of living in the California desert is that no matter where you go, you see people of all ages living their lives to the fullest.  I think it all has to do with the "attitude".   Just because you are getting older doesn't mean you can't continue to have fun and open as many new doors as you desire.  And speaking about opening new doors, one musical door opened for me and a lot of others when a women in the audience named Sharon Sills stepped up to the microphone and sang three or four great songs, including "Over The Rainbow", "Wind Beneath My Wings" and the old time favorite, "Crazy".   It turns out that Sharon Sills has been performing in the Newport Beach area for over 25 years. I am so happy that I got to hear her and hope I get to hear more of her in the future. Sharon is another example of a great talent just not getting the public exposure she deserves.  She should be a major recording star.  She is the total package,  funny, confident, attractive and has a great voice. I understand that Sharon has a new CD called  "At Last" but I was unable to find it on iTunes. If I get any information on it, I will post it.  In the meantime, if you are in the Newport Beach area at VIlla Nova, or the Balboa Bay Club, make an effort to see if Sharon is performing, I can guarantee it will be worth the effort. You can get more information about Sharon from her site:  Sharon, the picture above is of one of my favorite roses, it's especially for you!
