Unforgettable Night of Art and Music: Michael Israel’s Show Steals the Spotlight

Under the starlit sky, an unforgettable evening unfolded, seamlessly blending artistry, entertainment, and philanthropy. Hosted by football legend Mark May and expertly produced by Bob Escher of the Oneonta Boys and Girls Club, this event left an indelible mark on all who were fortunate enough to be there.

The stage was set, and the night was electric. It was an affair where the magic of live art collided with the rhythms of music, creating an atmosphere of sheer excitement and creativity.

Michael’s Masterpiece: The Mick Jagger Portrait

The show kicked off with a bang as Michael Israel unveiled his extraordinary Mick Jagger portrait. It wasn’t just art on display; it was an experience. The audience was spellbound as Michael’s brush strokes also brought a rose and Muhammad Ali to life on canvas. The result? A masterpiece that not only captured the essence of the legendary boxer but also commanded high bids.

But here’s where it gets even more thrilling – Michael’s Mick Jagger portrait was not just the top seller; it sold not once, but twice! The demand was so overwhelming that Michael committed to painting another version in his studio to be shipped to the fortunate buyer. It was a moment that showcased not only Michael’s immense talent but also his generous spirit.

Art with a Heart: Muhammad Ali Finds a New Home

Art took center stage, but the night was about more than just auctions and sales. It was about giving back. Michael’s rendition of Muhammad Ali, another captivating masterpiece, found a new home through donation. This stunning piece was generously given to the Boys and Girls Club, where it will continue to inspire and uplift.

Music and Memories: KC and the Sunshine Band with Special Guest Lauren Alaina

After the art extravaganza, the night took an exhilarating turn with the musical stylings of KC and the Sunshine Band, accompanied by the immensely talented Lauren Alaina. The iconic disco hits like “Get Down Tonight” and “That’s the Way (I Like It)” transported the audience back to the groovy 70s. The rhythm was infectious, and the energy was electric as the crowd danced and sang along.

Lauren Alaina, the country music sensation, added her own magic to the night with her powerful voice and heartfelt lyrics. Hits like “Road Less Traveled” and “Doin’ Fine” resonated with the audience, showcasing her incredible talent and stage presence.

A Night to Remember

In the heart of the 6th Ward Booster Club Field, this event was more than just a gathering; it was a celebration of art, music, and the spirit of giving. The music was pulsating, the art was inspiring, and memories were made that will be cherished for years to come.

As the night came to a close, it left everyone with a sense of fulfillment. It was a reminder that when art and music come together for a noble cause, the result is not only extraordinary but also deeply meaningful. Michael Israel’s artistry, combined with the music of KC and the Sunshine Band and Lauren Alaina, created a symphony of creativity and compassion that will resonate long after the applause fades.

It was a night to remember, hosted by the legendary Mark May and expertly produced by Bob Escher of the Oneonta Boys and Girls Club, and it left an indelible mark on all who were fortunate enough to be part of it.

HERO – A Heart-Warming Speed Painting Performance Depicting a Firefighter’s Sacrifice to Save His Own Daughter

HERO – A Heart-Warming Speed Painting Performance Depicting a Firefighter’s Sacrifice to Save His Own Daughter

Hero —the most endearing speed painting performance portrays a young firefighter who risks his life to save a child after being told by his chief, “Get Out! Save yourself, the building is collapsing.” Facing the flames and thinking he might not make it out alive, it becomes apparent when he reaches the child she is his very own 4-yr old daughter. Read the full story below.

Don’t miss the end! Goosebumps, cheers, smiles, and tears! This work has helped with many important causes and produced by Wolfgang Films. HERO explores commitment to an ideal. It asks the question: What endeavor would you undertake knowing full well that the odds are you will fail? What would you give your all to knowing you will likely be severely injured or even die trying? What is the greatest possible reward, and in that thought, what is the most valuable and priceless thing on earth? Paul and Chrissie are a young couple in their twenties, and have started a new family. The story as told by Chrissie I’ll never forget that day…It plays like a movie in my mind, over and over. My Husband, Paul, didn’t even eat breakfast that day. He was so excited he wanted to get to the fire station early. It was his first week on the job. Paul headed for the door but realized he had forgotten something important to him…

Jessie, our adorable three-year-old. She came running across the floor and jumped up in his arms…when Paul told her that he loved her, Jessie’s face lit up with a big smile, and in her tiny voice, she said, ” Daddy, will you play with me when you get home?” Paul smiled and said, “Of Course, Jessie… you are why I do what I do!” And then Jessie said, ” Daddy, you’re my big HERO…be careful, Daddy.” I hated that we both had to work, but I was glad Jessie could go to Gayle’s apartment to play with her daughter, Jen. When we got there, Jessie and Jen started playing with dolls right away and chattering about one thing and then another, and I heard Jen say that her Dad worked up in the clouds in the tallest office building. Then on my way out the door, I heard Jessie tell Jen that her Daddy is a Fireman. She sounded so proud. I left feeling happy and proud of both Jessie and Paul. I didn’t know that day would change my life….forever! Gayle told me that Jessie got up to go to the bathroom. Right after she closed the door, there was a massive explosion. Gayle said the apartment was filled with smoke. Without even thinking, she grabbed Jen and ran out. She said she frantically found the Fire Chief and told him that another little girl was trapped in the bathroom, up in her apartment. She told me she didn’t know what to do as the Chief told her there was no way that he could send any more men into that collapsing, old building as it was too far gone. They had also lost two Firefighters in the blaze. Then, Gayle heard Paul’s voice on the radio, saying he was on the second floor. The Chief told Paul to “GET OUT! He had his own family to think about.” … read the rest at http://michaelisrael.com/2012/videos/…
