Maile Kai at SOhO
Maile Kai Merrick, along with Sofia Schuster, sang solo, and the entire Adderley choir joined in and recently sang “Somewhere” from West Side Story in honor of Jim Dougherty‘s 80th birthday at the Lobero. But you’ll get to hear the remarkable Maile Kai and Sofia sing again at SOhO this Friday, April 12 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. It’s called Amplify Adderley and it will be the very first fundraiser for The Adderley School, “dedicated to helping children realize their potential on stage and in life, regardless of their parents’ ability to pay tuition.” Cost is just $60 for the show and dinner. Proceeds will go to scholarships and to help underwrite the upcoming production of West Side Story, at the Lobero on May 4 and 5. (Sofia will be playing Anita in West Side Story May 5 at 2 pm and will star with Maile Kai [Maria] the same day).
KEYT’s Alys Martinez will emcee the SOhO event that features not only Maile Kai and 2019 Teen Star winner Sofia, but also American Idol contender Jackson Gillies.
