The stage and video projection screens were originally built for one of +Paula Lawerence's birthday parties, who has been a friend of the home owner since high school.    

Several Amazing performers took the stage to serenade the guests who came from near and far such as music producer +Reginald Harmon who traveled all the way from Dayton, Ohio for this epic celebration. 

Reginald states that there is not a particular genre he focuses on, he just "records talent". Talent such as country band, +Mark Allan and the Crazy Boys and the ladies of +Sherry Gordy Presents who's explosive vocals belted out 80's power ballads and popular dance hits. 

The hero of the night was singer +Elisa Furr who burst in as the honorary  M.C. host when no one else was available to entertain guests between sets or technical difficulties. The lovely +Brooks Thurman showcased her commentator skills as the guest of honor and  turned up the heat with her rendition of Royals by Lorde

This city of lights, My Vegas Magazine and this party's guests illuminated the American dream of not only shooting for the stars but evolving into one, which is definitely a reason to celebrate the liberties of America on this very special Fourth of July weekend.
