I recently performed in the lipsync contest called Sing For A Cure at York College. Sing For A Cure is a charity event to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association, and is done in conjunction with the Walk To End Alzheimer’s. Bellomo & Associates is proud to support such an incredible organization.
My grandfather Alfonso Bellomo suffered through, and ultimately passed from, the disease. I remember vividly going with my parents to see him in the nursing home and realizing that that was not the grandfather I had known. It was so hard to watch his health and cognitive skills deteriorate, and I promised myself that one day I do what I could to help find a cure. However, science was never my thing, so I wasn’t going to find a cure, so I did the best thing I know-how. I support incredible organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Association every time I can.
Sing For A Cure was an incredible evening with nine talented, amazing acts. I did a medley of three songs, starting with Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal”, then going to Will Smith’s “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”, and ending with Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”. I had costume changes, and yes, I did wear a dress and a wig for “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”. What an incredible evening with great people, raising money for a great cause. I am so honored to have taken part in it and cannot express how incredible the entire night was.
Hats off to everyone who made the event a success and to the Alzheimer’s Association for everything they do to put an end to this terrible disease.
