World-renowned entertainer Deana Martin brings the stage to the screen with an exclusive Facebook Livestream event, honoring her father Dean Martin with an exclusive holiday-favorites interactive performance on Dec. 25, at 4 pm ET / 3 pm CT. Friday marks the 25th anniversary of his passing. As part of the year-end report by Pollstar, Deana Martin has been recognized as a top 10 Artist of the Year along with The Grand Ole Opry, Norah Jones, Camping World Concert Series, Bandsintown Outskirts, and more.
“I am thrilled and delighted to have such loyal fans,” Martin says. “At the beginning of the year, when the live shows were all canceled, we decided not to stop. I wanted to still interact with my audience and what better way to do so than to livestream? So, we put our iPhone on a tripod and Dec.18 was the 40th consecutive Friday that I have been able to spend with my Pallies from all over the world. Although this year has been different, we are so blessed to stay active and engaged!”
“She’s a fabulous entertainer, down to Earth and spontaneous,” Martin’s manager John Griffeth of Studio A Productions tells Pollstar. “They know she’s live, and when there’s a mistake she just laughs about it and it’s part of the show. Everyone feels she is performing just for them … because she is. She just wants to make people happy and allow them to escape for a few minutes every Friday. It’s personal and from the heart.”
