DePaola sings Anthem in Oakland

Sunday, July 6th, will be a busy but fun day for Pittsburg singer Nicky DePaola.
He was invited by the Oakland Athletics to sing the National Anthem before their 1:05 p.m. game against Toronto. DePaola has been invited back by the A’s for a number of years after sending them an audition tape of him singing the Anthem.
But his day won’t end at the ballpark.
He will be a special featured performer at the Pittsburg Yacht Club’s First Sunday jazz event, appearing with Ms. Honey (Alicia Daniels) and host Jack Pollard.
The dinner and show begin at 5 p.m. Tickets for the dinner are $45 and $25 for the show. Reservations can be made by calling (925) 267-3517.

Rancho Medanos mentor spreads her wings

 

Latrice Walker, the Rancho Medanos Afterschool Program Site Coordinator for STS Academy, added a new chapter to her singing career in May when she did a special performance with the Rancho Medanos Band under the direction of Kevin Galloway.

Walker has been singing all her life, primarily gospel and classical music. A native of Richmond, she began singing in church while still a child after her family moved to the Central Valley.

She sang for the Shiloh Church Choir in Pixley and later with the Fresno Temple Choir. She later sang with the Porterville College Chorale under the direction of Dr. Ron Kean and College of Sequoias Choir in Visalia under the direction of Jeff Seaward. She has been a member of the Tulare Kings Counties Mass Choir under the direction of founder Charles Parker for over 15 years and has been invited to perform at the group’s 25th Anniversary Concert next February at the Fox Theatre in Visalia.

She and her husband, Pastor Rodney Walker, are founders of the International House of Prayer, 520 Second St., Antioch where she directs the music program.

Walker has sung professionally throughout Northern and Southern California and in Hawaii. She also mentors young singers through her Latrice Walker Vocal Academy.

“Some of my (afterschool) students in the band and Mr. Galloway asked me to sing with the Rancho Medanos Band,” said Walker. “They knew I did a lot of singing at different events.”

Walker agreed and performed “It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing,” the first time she had even sung a jazz number (see the performance above).

“It was great,” she said of the experience and reception she received. “I found out that I can be a jazz singer.”
