Manilow, Barry/Shout Out


Hi Laurie,
I am writing to request that Mr. Manilow give a
special shout out to my friend Fran Bayne at his Feb. 27th concert in The Verizon Center.  I love Manilow but Fran loves his music the most. Fran has attended at least 20 Manilow concerts over the years between the East Coast and Vegas.  Fran is an operating room nurse who has dedicated her life to helping others.  Hearing from Barry would give her a life time memory.  I hope Mr. Manilow can remember my friend on Feb 27th.  She will be near the front as she is among one of his biggest fans.  Thank you


Hello, Germaine!

Thank you for contacting me through All Experts.  First of all, let me preface my response by clarifying that I am not a member of Barry's Management Team, and I cannot arrange for Barry to give a shout out to your friend, Fran Bayne at his concert at the Verizon Center in D.C. on February 27th.  I understand that she is a big fan of Barry's and how much it would mean to her if Barry acknowledged her during the show.  You can also be assured that Barry is very grateful for the love and support of his fans.  I hope Fran has a great time at Barry's show in D.C., and I appreciate you writing to me.

Take care and if I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me again.


Laurie :)
