Pop star sings at island fundraiser for PAWS
Vicci Martinez’s voice has earned her much praise, including the third place prize on the first season of the hit TV show “The Voice.”
The Tacoma-based singer received quite a few paws up when she took her voice to Bainbridge Island’s Manor House at Pleasant Beach on Sunday, Feb. 10.
Accompanied by keyboardist Eric Roberts, Martinez played to a sold-out house of nearly 100 islanders to benefit PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap.
The audience put forth donations and bid in a silent auction. Martinez also posed for photos with fans and autographed her recently-released album “Vicci” that includes the hit single “Come Along” featuring Cee Lo Green.
The concert raised more than $5,000 for PAWS.
PAWS can put the money to good use.
The cat adoption center is moving its operations into a brand-new facility on Pleasant Beach and to another location in Kingston.
