The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America thanks Emily West for her support of AFA. Emily’s dream is to tell stories through song. After moving to Nashville at 18, she enjoyed some success in the music industry. In search of a clean slate, she packed a bag for New York City. She was looking for a do-over, an opportunity to reinvent herself. She found her home in the clubs and theatres of Manhattan where she transfixed audiences with her one-woman show. Emily made the decision to try out for America’s Got Talent. “I thought maybe if I audition in front of the world, I could save time and see where it takes me. “ It was a wise decision.
Thank you Emily for supporting the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America is proud to have the support of Tony Lucca. Tony was born on the outskirts of Detroit on the heels of Motown’s heyday, raised within the loving confines of an enormous family of musicians; his mom was the 10th of 12 kids who all sang and played. At the ripe age of 12, Tony had his first playing gig as a musician at a Jr. High School dance and by the age of 15, he parlayed his childhood rock-n-roll fantasy into a legitimate career, getting cast among an extraordinary group of newcomers on the “All New Mickey Mouse Club”, along with Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosing and Britney Spears. He finished third on The Voice in 2012 and won a record deal in the process. Tony has made records with Adam Levine and toured with Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson.
AFA thanks Tony for his continued support of our programs and services.
