LAMA Vocalist Felicia Andolong Performs “Castles in the Sky”

It’s LAMA-Tube time! In this video, Felicia Andolong performs a beautiful rendition of “Castles in the Sky” during a recent LAMA Vocal Showcase (Spring 2013). The showcases are somewhat like an “American Idol” style format. After each performance, guest vocal judges Nick Cooper, Scott Wojahn and Windy Wagner joined LAMA’s Vocal Artist Development Director Dorian Holley to offer professional feedback. We’re so proud of Felicia’s hard work and solid execution of “Castles.” Check out her performance here:

LAMA Grad Sings Anthem at Dodgers Game


Proud LAMA Grad, Jonathan Hernandez, was invited to sing the national anthem at Dodgers stadium last night by the Save a Warrior organization. He absolutely nailed it! His beautiful, strong voice and smooth, patient performance deserved the very nice ovation he received from the crowd in attendance (32K).  When he was done singing, Mary Hart (former host of Entertainment Tonight) offered him some major kudos!

Some of the LAMA staff joined Jonathan for his trip to the stadium. We received a visit from celebrities Chris Tucker and David Arquette, congratulating Jonathan on his performance. Baseball fans kept walking up to Jonathan during the game, asking for photos, congratulating him and complimenting him on his voice.

Jonathan, Iris, Wilber, Tom and Dan (who took that photo) were also shown on the Jumbotron for the whole stadium to see. What a blast! Check out some of the photos below, as well as a video during the performance:


Singing the Anthem!
