Deana Martin, movie and singing star, Dean Martin’s daughter, flew into Connecticut with her handsome husband on August 3, 2012. Before her scheduled evening performance at Mt. Carmel’s Italian Festival, she graced a full audience in the afternoon at St. Joseph’s Residence in Enfield with a private concert.
Not only were the Sisters and residents at St. Joseph’s thrilled by her fine voice and choice of songs, they were awed at her cheerful and outstanding professionalism in the face of several mishaps. She improvised seamlessly in the absence of her pianist who was delayed in flight, unruffled by a microphone that faulted and cheerfully stunned with the unexpected antics of a trio of residents who were invited to sing along with her.
A film montage of choice moments of her father Dean with his movie partner Jerry Lewis and nostalgic shots of her growing years and the honing of her professional skills by her father’s side closed the afternoon’s entertainment.
The audience at St. Joseph’s couldn’t get enough of this brilliant performer. She cane in a Star and left as a family member. Thanks and God Bless You Deana. Please come again.
