Alex opened last night in the American premier of the Irish musical drama FIND YOUR WAY HOME. It played, one night only, at the Palace Theater in Albany, New York, last night 17 July. It was a magical evening! The play and music were written by two Albany songwriters. The raised enough to take it over to Ireland and have it produced and videotaped. It opened to great acclaim in Ireland. They then raised enough to have a premier at the Palace Theater this past March to screen the video of the first act. THEN they raised enough to bring the cast over and have three performances - one on Albany, one in Boston and one in New York. Hopefully they will raise enough money and interest to open in New York. Everyone please say a prayer of support. When Jimmy and Jeff went over to Ireland and contacted an acting company, they asked if they knew anyone who would be adequate to the task of tackling the lead female role - superb actress, incredible singer, capable of sailing an audience through the entire range of emotions from triumphant tragedy. They said yes, only one name came to mind. Alex shone in the role of Tess Riordan; spare a thought of sympathy for any actress who ever has to follow Alex in that role, she has defined the character. And they have a CD for sale! Go to www.findyourwayhomethe musical.com.

Well hello! After a long long long absence, I felt there was actually something to post.

Alex will perform at the Palace Theater in Albany, NY on 7/17 in the musical play "Find Your Way Home". It truly is an rare opportunity to see her do what she has done for her entire career; musical theater.

Like most of you, I have only seen her perform as part of a singing troupe or as a solo artist. This will be a wonderful show. It has received rave reviews in Ireland and this is one of only 3 engagements in the US.

If you can go, please do. I have my ticket already, and feel so lucky that it is only a short drive to the venue. Hope to see some of you there. This is why, even though Facebook has taken over this type of activity, I keep the lights on here.

...if anyone is still reading posts here. Wink.

Thanks
Dave

Here is a link to the trailer for the show  Smiley

If you hadn't heard ( and I hope you all have), Alex was in Albany, New York on Sunday, March 26th for the screening of the first act of a play sheis/will be in. The play is FIND YOUR WAY HOME. The first act is set in Ireland circa 1910, about the joys and sorrows in a small town hit by economic hardship. Alex has the female lead ("Tess") and does a marvelous job. Play and music were more than 8 years in the making by two talented guys from Albany - Jimmy Kelly and Jeff Strange - wrote the play and scored the music. They got enough funding to have a company in Ireland put it on and get it filmed (in six days!). The first act was screened in Albany at a first-class event to raise support for bringing the play here, putting it on, and - hopefully - heading to Broadway. There was a meet the creators and performers at a reception before hand ... AND I FINALLY GOT TO MEET ALEX! That was a marvelous experience. Picture of my wife and I and Alex is on FaceBook (I just have to figure out how to get it over). In the run up to the screening, Alex sang three songs, all fantastic. She was a bit down because it was her son's birthday, and that day was Mother's Day in Ireland. The screening had a few technical glitches, and you could tell that it was a work in the rough ... but a diamond in the rough. The standing ovation was spontaneous and heartfelt. I doubt that there was anyone in the theater who wouldn't want to see Act 2. They are looking for support and will be posting details. Keep an eye open and support Alex and her friends.

For anyone who hasn't seen these, here are a few recently-posted clips of Alex's performance in her concert entitled One Heart One Voice in August 2015 in Logan, Utah. These show that she still has her amazing talent! It was a great honor to work with her in producing this concert. I'm at the piano on these. It has been amazing to go from barely knowing her on this forum to working with her for two weeks as we performed together. So fun to talk to her personally and then watch her go up to the microphone and transform into the amazing performer she is. Here are the links (note that there is a 42 second intoduction on each clip):

Thank you very much for that testimony. It must have been a profound experience. I am sorry to have missed it. Alex always manages to reach out and touch the soul where it most needs it.

During the last few weeks I've had one of the most amazing experiences of my life, preparing a concert with Alex and then performing with her on Aug 7 and 8th. Since those concerts there has been a steady stream of letters, cards, flowers, and people stopping me and saying how they were blown away by this event.

I just started out as a fan on this fan forum--amazing where that has taken me. Our shared mission of lifting others through music seems to be coming to pass. Yesterday we had another amazing experience.  This was my post on Facebook yesterday:

Today I could not be more proud of our friend Alex Sharpe as she appeared as vocal soloist with the Mormon Tablernacle Choir. Proud--not just for her performance, but for how and why she does her music and how she treats her fans and other musicians. All this I have seen very close up. The Tabernacle Choir is also lucky to have experienced this with her. Something tells me that they are not finished with her.
Today all of Ireland should be proud of this woman whom we are honored to call our friend. Thank you Alex for all of the wonderful experiences you have given me and my family, and what you have given our valley. We will be blessed for years to come for what you have selflessly given us. I am at a loss--how do you thank somebody who has helped so many people, including me, to live better, be stronger, and to reach higher? I don't know, but we can honor you by doing the same for others with our own talents. Thank you Alex, for a wonderful few weeks, and have a great re-entry back into normal life!! We love you!!
