Donna De Lory’s letter to her fans from the Live 8 rehearsals
As promised by the amazing Donna De Lory herself before leaving for London to hit the stage with Madonna in Hyde Park, an exclusive report to her fans while in rehearsals for Live 8 has been published at Donna’s Official Dream team website.
“I just got back from the park where the Live 8 benefit is being held. We arrived today at 4pm and began right away, first with getting our hair and make up done. Soon it was time to get into our outfits and show Madonna how we looked so she could approve everything.
We spend five days rehearsing and now it was time to get onto that stage for a dress rehearsal. You’d be amazed at how much work goes into a fifteen minute set! We got on the stage a bit late because Sting was running late.
Once we were on the stage the sound had totally changed from what we had heard in our ears. It took a while to get things working… but once things were working great we ran through all the songs twice.
It had just stopped raining before we went on stage, and the park was filled with people who were working on the show. They were singing along and dancing as we were doing the run through. I could tell there were some real fans out there! I am so excited for tomorrow night!
The energy of the people in the audience and all around the world at these events will be soaring so high into the stratosphere.
I am far away from home and deeply missing my family and the quiet nature we live in, but I am so happy to be here. To be part of such a uniting event. I promise I will write more soon!
PS – Sting said hi today when I was coming onto the stage! I love him so much!
As you all know, Donna will be performing at the new Golden Bridge Yoga center in Hollywood on July 16th… and her Dream Team needs your help!!! This has the potential of being one of Donna’s largest shows, and they are looking for people who are interested in lending a hand to promote the event.
