James Otto, Deana Carter and Billy Dean lent their talents to the California AIDS Walk fundraising festival at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre on Sunday, September 26. Comedian Wanda Skyes hosted the event which also included performances from Sheila E, Hanson, Shontelle and the Alan Parsons Project.
“Awareness is always important,” Deana tells The Boot. “It’s important to serve and lend a helping hand. I’m happy to be here and play with Billy and James, but anytime we can help the healing, that’s the main thing.”
Deana admits that the event also offers the perk of hanging out with other celebrities who are participating. “Shelia E. and I have been dancing together all day,” she says with a laugh. “We’ve been in and out of each others dressing rooms. They’d move me in hers, her in mine, etc. She’s a sweet wonderful girl and this is the first time we’ve met. I’m a big fan.”
