It's 'amore' for Deana Martin at Hollywood's House of Blues
HOLLYWOOD, CA -- Stage performer and book author Deana Martin, the daughter of the late American singer, recording artist, movie star and television icon Dean Martin, spent the 10th year anniversary of 9/11 at the world famous House of Blues on the Sunset Strip entertaining a packed house and raising money and awareness for a worthy cause -- Grandparents As Parents, a worldwide support group.
Following an exquisite performance for grandparents and other relatives dedicated to loving and rearing at-risk children, Martin -- dressed in a dazzling display of glitter and glitz -- greeted her fans and supporters by inscribing her latest book, entitled "Memories Are Made Of This."
The tell-all book, first published in 2004, was written by Martin to "set the record straight" about her family.
The strikingly beautiful entertainer also signed her most recently released CD of the same name as her book.
Some of the luminaries attending Martin's benefit concert included movie producer A.C. Lyles, who began his career at Paramount Studios in 1936. Lyles is best known for bringing to the silver screen a number of westerns in the 1950s and 1960s.
In addition to honoring those grandparents and extended family members of children-in-need, Martin paid tribute to her famous father and other great entertainers, including Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Bobby Darin.
The internationally-acclaimed entertainer also announced that her book will be made into a major motion picture that will be directed by actor Joe Mantegna. The screenplay is currently being penned by actor, producer and writer Bonnie Hunt.
Martin's next concert in Los Angeles will take place at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood on November 23.
