Grand Rapids’ Retirement Home Residents Urge Tony Bennett to Pay Them a Visit
Tony Bennett is bringing his tour to Grand Rapids' DeVos Performance Hall on May 8, and a trio of women from the Villa Maria Retirement Community are asking him to make a pit stop before the show.
The three "Cougars on the Prowl" - Gladys, Beverly, and Alice - put together a video in hopes of getting the jazz crooner's attention.
In the video, the trio joke about Bennett seeming like a "fine young man". "He's only 91!" 91 IS young to the them. Gladys is 104, Alice is 100, and Beverly is 94.
"We'd love to welcome you personally, but we can't. The only wheels we have are on our walkers," jokes Alice.
Villa Maria is located less than two miles from DeVos Performance Hall.
