How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Rent it!

B.C. singer raises $200,000 for one night in the famous New York venue

by

Ken Lavigne, a singer from Victoria, British Columbia, rented New York’s Carnegie Hall last week so he could give a concert at the world’s most famous recital venue. To get the money for the hall and a 50-piece orchestra, he raised $200,000 from friends, fans and well-wishers in Canada. Which just goes to prove that you don’t need to go on a reality show to get your tenor voice heard; you just need to be willing to spend your life’s savings for one night in New York.
