(Philadelphia, PA) – SIZZLING, DYNAMIC, GENEROUS, PATRIOTIC, TALENTED AND BEAUTIFUL are just some of the adjectives used to describe singer/dancer/model Doreen Taylor.
That’s why former world heavyweight boxing champion, Joe Frazier, and 350 VIP’s will be in attendance for the “Coming Home-Doreen Taylor” Red Carpet event. The “Invitation- Only” gala at “Trust” in Philadelphia on February 26th will be the world launch for Doreen Taylor’s new book and CD which pay tribute to the WWII era.
“With two grandfathers that served in the U. S. military and more soldiers being deployed overseas, I felt that today’s soldiers and their families deserved some help,” stated Taylor.
Accordingly, the new project includes 19 songs, all sung by Taylor and all from the 20s, 30s, and 40s. In order to pick out the songs, Taylor admittedly sought some help. “I asked my grandmother what the songs of the day were, and we found a super studio with outstanding musicians to perform them. All I had to do was lay down my vocal tracks.”
There’s also a 32-page book, in which model Taylor strikes slightly provocative poses and dons costumes reminiscent of the pinup girls to whom WWII soldiers swooned.
A large percentage of the book/CD profits will be donated to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF), a top-rated nonprofit that supports more than 60,000 Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps special operations personnel and their families. One-hundred percent of all charitable donations from the event on Friday, February 26th will be donated directly to the cause. (www.specialops.org.)
Pennsylvania Senator Lawrence Farnese will personally present the charity with a special citation.
Doreen will perform live at the red carpet event for guests spanning the worlds of sports, politics and entertainment. Representatives are expected from numerous national and local television affiliates including, but not limited to, TMZ, FOX, ABC, NBC, CBS, etc.
Phil Andrews, current President of Sports and Entertainment for Tier1 Consultants, will emcee the extravaganza. Originally known as the long time sports anchor for 6 ABC News in Philadelphia, Andrews later took over microphone duties for Comcast Sportsnet from 2005 to 2008.
Comedian/radio personality Joe Conklin will kick off the evening’s festivities with a brief comedy routine (www.joeconklin.com). Conklin has piled up a plethora of TV credits and worked with some of the nation’s most recognized performers including Bill Cosby, Tim Allen, Rosie O’Donnell, Pat Croce, Patti LaBelle, Gayle Sayers, Dennis Miller, Ray Romano, Wayne Brady and Kenny Rogers.
