Saturday Night at the Intercontinental Hotel in downtown Miami was the glitzy and glamorous Miami Make a Wish Foundation 20th Annual Ball. And if you looked into the corner of the massive ballroom, away from all the glitz and pomp, you would have seen none other than legendary performer Wayne Newton, sharing some laughs with Skum’s lead singer, Hart Baur.
Wayne and Hart were out at the star studded event in support of the Make a Wish Foundation, the organization whose mission it is to grant the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions, a mission that Wayne Newton describes as “fabulous”. They were also there to in support of fellow performer Diana Ross, who starred in the evening’s “Oz Reimagined” theme.
“What can I say?” asked Hart. “Wayne is a legend, and when I learned he would be at this event, it was all the more reason to attend. We were able to catch up, and had a great conversation.”
Wayne was excited about the upcoming Miami premier of “Skum Rocks!“. “I love Alice Cooper,” he said. “Alice is in the rock and roll hall of fame for a reason, and anything he signs on to is a must see. And I’m proud of the Skum guys. There’s is a great rock and roll story, and I wish them all the best.”
“I was joking about Skum playing Vegas next year, and told Wayne we could stay at his house,” said Hart. “He laughed.”
“Not happening, ” added Wayne. “I heard what the guys did during their stay in Memphis. Besides, have you seen Tommy Craig’s house?”
“It was a great night for a great cause,” added Hart. “Plus, hanging with Wayne was special. Hope he can make the premiere.”
