My mailbox has been overflowing with Christmas cheer these past couple of weeks. The Valley really does an amazing job at bringing the holiday spirit to the desert. And although I could spout out dozens of holiday events going on this weekend, I thought I’d pick my three faves. Enjoy and happy holidays!
Hang with Hung (American Idol Contestant) for the Holidays
Whether you’re an avid American Idol fan or not, you very well know William Hung, famous for his rendition of Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs”. Well the AI celeb is headed to our Geisha A Go Go in Old Town Scottsdale tomorrow at 10:30 p.m. night for a crowd-pleasing performance!
Hung is in town to spice up Geisha A Go Go’s holiday soiree and will perform three songs, one of which will be “She Bangs”. Valley karaoke/American Idol fans are invited to join in the fun, and sing along, with Hung as he rings in the holidays the American Idol way.
