"Star Comes Home To The Star"

A star came home to the Star last night, and captivated the sold out crowd.
Deborah Light Liles offered up lots of jazz blues, and special guest Keith Howland, lead guitarist for Chicago, who recorded and produced the live CD.
A very special tribute was done to her grandfather, Harley Raymond Light, with a gut stirring accapella rendition of the National Anthem.
It was a unique experience for this town, and Ms. Liles, we hope, will come home more often - WYYD/Star Theater Press
