Luck on singer’s side as she makes splash in Vegas

first_imgLAS VEGAS – Sarah Todora, an unassuming 18-year-old with a Louisiana drawl, has landed a gig at the Sahara hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip. And thanks to a mysterious benefactor, Todora and her father-promoter, Phil, 44, pay $1 a month to stay at a three-bedroom condominium in a high-rise luxury tower where residences sell for up to $9 million. It’s an upbeat twist of fate in a city known for its second chances. And the show-business community’s embrace of their plight is a world removed from the cold devastation the pair faced when Katrina blew ashore. “I know it ain’t me,” said Todora, whose smoky presence on stage belies her shyness off it. “So, yeah, got to be faith, got to be God. Something.” Three months ago, after their car was stolen and with no real prospects in Las Vegas, the Todoras were prepared to retreat to Louisiana.

But two days after arriving, Katrina hit back home. It took three weeks before the Todoras could reach any of the band members they represented, by then scattered by the storms to Houston, New York and Atlanta. “These are whole bands that got separated,” Phil Todora said. “Instruments, CDs, press kits, computers, everything gone.” The Todoras spent their first weeks in Nevada at a budget motel, numb as TV broadcasts relayed the Gulf Coast’s unfolding disaster. Their reason for being in Las Vegas was all but gone and the money was quickly running out. But Sarah Todora had won praise for her husky vocals at festivals in Louisiana and Washington, D.C., and wasn’t ready to give up. “Sarah said, `Dad, let’s go. Everybody else is back home, but me and you are here. Let’s go do it. You do what you do, I’ll do what I do and we’ll crawl out of this hole,”‘ he recalled. Phil Todora approached Jerry Tiffe, a friend of a friend and a lounge singer who for 28 years worked places like the Sands and Tropicana. Tiffe let Sarah perform with him at a neighborhood restaurant and lounge. Then, thanks to a call from Tiffe, the Sahara’s director of marketing and entertainment, Ron Garrett, dropped by to catch the act. In the show, the willowy blonde segues from covers of Tracy Chapman and Norah Jones to an original song inspired by her encounter with a fast-talking Nashville promoter. In a guttural performance of “Too Young for Nashville,” she tells how she gave up aspirations to be the next LeAnn Rimes so she could sing the blues.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Eight Los Angeles children will ride horses in the upcoming Rose Parade as a reward for their success in the Wonderful Outdoor World program. Among the eight are Luz Roque from Pacoima and Alejandro Gutierrez and Ricardo Solis Jr. from Sylmar. W.O.W. gives urban children ages 8-12 a chance to camp at their local park or recreation area, where they learn skills like pitching tents and catching fish and get an overall respect for nature. It’s offered through the city Department of Recreation and Parks and has several public and private sponsors. — Fifteen Girl Scouts from the San Fernando Valley received the Girl Scout Gold Award at a ceremony in Granada Hills. Only senior scouts ages 16 or 17 are eligible for the award, which is the highest in the scouts. Earning the Gold Award requires a Girl Scout to “set goals, plan and put aspirations into action, gain leadership skills, explore career options and develop personal values while providing services to the community at large.” One of the award winners, Brianne King of Sylmar, designed a 12-square-foot “Star Gazing Center” for studying astronomy at a Girl Scout camp in Frazier Park. Another, Kristina Smith of Burbank, provided a summer music camp called “Mornings with Music” for children at a local school.last_img read more
