The evening's entertainer, Arthur Hervey. He was incredible! He is currently an entertainer at Harrah's Lake Tahoe, while also maintaining residency in Siloam Springs with his lovely wife Randy. I just visited his website, and I am completely amazed by his range of talent and experience. I mean, he has sung a duet with James Brown. Seriously! Now that he's local, I can only hope there will be more opportunities to check out his act.
The young lady in the green skirt also performed during the event. Her name is Alexis Wilkins, and she is a tremendously talented singer. She divides her time between Fayetteville and LA, where she attends the School of Rock. She is pictured with George Ouyoumjan, owner of Emelia's, and her mother, Melanie Wilkins. Talent certainly runs in their family, as Melanie took many of the lovely photos featured in this post. Many thanks again, Melanie!
