Barbra, Billy, Barry, Neil, Carole, Carly, Paul, Bob and Bette. Or if you will, Streisand, Joel, Manilow, Diamond, King, Simon, Dylan and Midler. All are on a first name basis with the world, which may not know they are all Jewish. We do, and Temple Israel is hosting a gala fundraiser that will feature sing alongs to some of their most iconic pop hits.

“Let’s Sing,” a rousing karaoke-style program, will be led by Hampton Roads’ top raconteur and banker, funny and fun-loving Morgan Davis, president of TowneBank.

“When Morgan sits down at a piano, he makes you want to gather around and belt out the tunes with him,” says Sara Jo Rubin, Temple Israel vice president for fund raising. “For April 10, he is picking classics from these great Jewish artists and will lead us in the singing. And if you want to dance on the floor of Brody Auditorium, you can feel free to do that too.”

Tickets are $60 each and include beer and wine, hors d’oeuvres and dinner prepared by chef Deanna Freridge and her culinary students at Tidewater Community College. Call Temple Israel at 489‑4550 during business hours to make a reservation.
