Red Grammer came to our town again to sing for us last week in the historic Eureka Theater in Eureka, California. I was honored and tickled pink to be given the opportunity to join him on a couple of songs. We did his song "Listen" and I echoed his words in Spanish and also signed many of the words and phrases. Then I shared my song "One World/Un Mundo". Local schools were bussed in to enjoy the program and Red had everyone captivated with his inimitable, joyful style. The k-8 students all enthusiastically joined in on every song. All around the theater, big smiles were everywhere. I came away with an expanded appreciation and respect for how Red conducts his shows and draws the listeners---young and old---into the community of song.
