A big thank you to Valerie Duke for performing at the Abba’s House event on January 17 as our guest vocalist. Valerie’s remarkable talent shone through as she stepped in for Melanie Willetts, who was away for her intensive week pursuing a doctorate in theology at Richmont. Valerie, alongside Greg Glover, mesmerized the audience with their duets. Their rendition of ‘Walkin’ My Baby Back Home,’ originally performed by Nat King Cole and his daughter Natalie, was a nostalgic journey. Their rendition of ‘On a Slow Boat to China,’ a classic rejuvenated by Bette Midler and Barry Manilow, was a fun romp. Thanks to Valerie for making this special for the guests and for her exceptional contribution to the event.
