Jane Seymour and hubby James Keach were on hand to mark a milestone for one of their favorite causes-City Hearts. The organization, which helps at-risk kids through artistic endeavors, has just celebrated its 20th anniversary.
Jane, James and actress Sharon Lawrence joined a full contingent of City Hearts supporters who turned out for a birthday bash and art show.
Hundreds of kids got to showcase their talent with examples of their painting and photography as well as performances of drama and dance.
Since 1984, the organization has provided arts education to more than 20,000 kids in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.
For City Hearts founder Sherry Jason, it’s a moment of pride.
“Instead of acting up, these inner city kids are now acting on stage,” she said. “Instead of joining a gang, City Hearts classmates become their group. Instead of shooting with guns, students learn to shoot with cameras.”
The kids are instructed and mentored by professionally trained actors, dancers, artists and musicians. After two decades of valuable community service, it’s clear that this organization is all heart.
DO YOU BELIEVE?
The beat goes on and on and on, but now Cher is reaching the end of the road. Honest, she really, really is. Cher, who has been turning back time since 2001, is scheduled to do her last live show next month.
Saying so long to this show biz legend isn’t something that can be done overnight, but her Farewell Tour has to be a record breaker-3 years and 325 extravagant performances in the making.
The worldwide trek has also been dubbed the “Never Can Say Goodbye Tour.” But snicker not, because she’s got you babe.
Our navel-baring Malibu songbird can boast the most successful U.S. tour by any female artist in history. She’s sold more than 3 million tickets and grossed more than $200 million.
Cher said the last three years have been so much fun, she just couldn’t call it quits. “I’ve had the best audience in the last three years, better than any of the shows I’ve ever done. That’s why I kept asking my managers to add more and more shows.”
Cher admitted that the final performance at the Hollywood Bowl will be one filled with emotion. She said, “I’ll be thinking back when I performed on stage at the bowl over 40 years ago with Sonny. This show will complete the circle.”
After the last encore, Cher will head back to her palatial Malibu villa. “My tour bus is retiring and going up on blocks,” she said. “I’ll hitch a ride home and it will be nice to sleep in my own bed for a change.”
The final show takes place on April 30. Order your tickets early and don’t miss out on a one-of-a-kind experience that can only be described as tres Cher.
