My name is Jacqueline McAllister, and The Delores A. Hudson Foundation was created in honor of my Mother Delores after we lost her to ovarian cancer. I am thrilled to partner with Until We Sing Again and Pete's Dueling Piano bar to raise money in my mother's name for our Heroes the Medical First Responders. Our family was eternally grateful for all the medical staff that took care of her in her time of need, and this is my way of giving back. She would have been honored to give back to those that took such great care of her and who are taking care of all of us!
Our mission is to raise funds through downloads of the song "Until We Sing Again," as well as monetary donations and in-kind gifts like tickets, dinners, or a night on the town to create memorable experiences for our medical first responder's after life gets back to quasi-normal. This is a way to show our medical first responders how much we appreciate them while also stimulating the economy. We plan to send teams of these hard-working doctors, nurses, paramedics, medical technicians, police officers, hospital staff, and all essential workers out on the town to have some fun after working through these difficult times. It might be dinner to their favorite restaurant, a comedy show, a trip to their favorite amusement park, or to see their favorite NBA, NHL, MLS, MLB or NHL team, or maybe it's a concert, musical or a play – the sky's the limit!
Pete's Dueling Piano Bar recently created a big buzz while raising over $32,000 for their staff of bartenders, waitresses, and door hosts with five virtual live performances under the mantra "Until We Sing Again." The piano players at Pete's Dueling Piano Bar created a performance that brought a little joy back into the homes of Pete's friends and family while adhering to the current stay-at-home order and raising money.
Now on to the second act, "Until We Sing Again," the song: The team at Pete's Dueling Piano Bar has further committed to fundraising $1 million to give back to our first responders, showing them that we care and are taking this stay-at-home order seriously.
Corey Urbach, the owner of Pete's Dueling Piano Bar, cowrote a beautiful song with Kyle Level and David Banning titled "Until We Sing Again." This song embraces everything that America stands for, including faith, love, and perseverance! "Until We Sing Again" speaks to all of us, and our values are embodied in its words. The song translates to anyone and everyone until we dance, hug, and celebrate again and until we return to weddings, sporting events, and concerts. We will eventually be able to do all these things again. For now, we must leave it to the power of a song that lifts us up and helps us through times like these! Let's raise up our first responders in song, reach into our soul, and do what is right and stay home!
