Vince Vance often views the wonders of the ‚ÄúCity that Care Forgot‚ÄĚ; in his latest music video, he‚Äôs portrays it as a city of wonders always worth caring for and never forgetting.
The music video is an ode yet upbeat infectuous tribute to New Orleans, a remake of another famous New Orleans musician and composer, Louis Armstrong‚Äôs What a Wonderful World.
Armstrong‚Äôs memorable classic and Vance‚Äôs vibrant rendition will be featured in an fundraising event on behalf of some of our young children who might long to see the New Orleans flowers blum and rainbows glow.
At a fundraiser and CD release party, Saturday May 17, Vance‚Äôs ‚ÄúNew Orleans: a Wonderful World in Itself‚ÄĚ will be featured at Rock ‚Äėn Bowl. One hundred percent of the money raised from the Silent & Live Auctions will go to Pediatric Oncology Unit Children's Hospital. Lamarque Ford and Deanie's Seafood are both Gold Sponsors.
Ronnie LaMarque will perform the original Satchmo version of What a Wonderful World, followed by Vance's performance of his version of the classic.
In addition to his newest creation, Vance has released numerous songs capturing the essence of New Orleans, including I Am New Orleans, Cajun Christmas, and Mardi Gras Time and Louisiana lady.
Vance says that he has "tried to bring attention to classic song arranged in [his] own way." In this release, he plans to "target a younger audience and expose them to the melody and harmony in a Modern Dance Version that shows the World our wonderful world, New Orleans."
