The Commodores - Nightshift

I recently had the great pleasure of meeting JD Nicholas of The Commodores at a fundraiser I attended in Las Vegas for the Coker Foundation and The PhilLil Foundation. I have joined the Board of The Phil Lil Foundation and the featured entertainer at the event was the multi talented Phil Perry. JD Nicholas of The Commodores and Pete Moore of Smoky Robinson and The Miracles were there to lend support to their long time friend, Phil Perry. It was a magical night. JD joined the Commodores in 1982 after Lionel Richie left the group to go solo. I think JD was a great find and he has been with them ever since. The Commodores continue to tour internationally and bring great joy to music lovers everywhere. Music truly is a universal language.

To see a picture of me with Pete Moore and JD Nicholas at the Las Vegas fundraiser, go to my website for The Special Angel Project, a non-profit organization I formed with my daughter Kelly in 1994. We use music to help kids and families in crisis. You can learn more about how we use music to help others on this site. Special Angel Inc
Also, I'm sure that Pete and JD would want you to learn more about their friend Phil's organization that helps kids through music. The PhilLill Foundation.

I'm very proud to be associated with such wonderful and giving people as Lillian and Phil Perry. This is truly what life is about - giving back to those in need through people working together for good. Thanks Lillian and Phil for making a difference in the lives of children and thank you JD and Pete for taking the time to support good causes through your wonderful music.
