Avery has a talent for singing and playing the piano. Her grandmother (Mario's mom) was a concert pianist, and Alfonso a great voice. We both regret that she gave it up as she had an incredible natural talent. In fact, Mario was extremely talented playing the piano and in high school played keyboard and also sang in a band. He performed at all the high school events
Mario has a naturally wonderful voice. I remember one time in the Hamptons, LuAnn sang at a karaoke night. Than Mario sang The Doors song, "Touch Me." He amazed everyone, including LuAnn. I find Mario extremely sexy when he sings. I love his voice! I was so excited to have him perform, as I know how much he enjoys singing -- and of course I enjoy listening to him. All of our friends came out to hear him. So many people came in fact, that I knew it added to Mario's nervousness.
Shane Stevens is a songwriter. I call him my other husband. He has written top hits for many current major singers. He gave one of his songs for Mario to sing and provided back up singers.
Heather does everything well, so naturally it was no surprise how great she performed. She was rocking it!
I must say I was provoking LuAnn. I just could not help myself. She was making all these dumb excuses of why she could not perform that night. They were all bull sh--, and I could not resist calling her out on it. It was immature on my part, I know
On a more positive note, I must say Kristen and I found our places with each other and I am enjoying her friendship.
