24TH ANNUAL LA MUSIC AWARDS
Award-Winning Pianist to Perform at Rockefeller Center in New York City During Holidays
Bellagio Resort & Casino’s nationally recognized pianist David Osborne recently won “Concert Performer of the Year” at the 24th Annual Los Angeles Music Awards (LAMA). Osborne was nominated for two awards and performed for guests at a private dinner for the award recipients. The LA Music Awards was founded in 1991 to honor the rising stars of independent music while giving them a platform to move toward commercial success. It created a Hollywood media event that generates high profile publicity.
The famed musician will perform at Rockefeller Center in New York City on MSNBC’s weekday morning talk show “The Morning Joe,” during the holidays, speaking about his upcoming performance Tuesday, Dec. 23 at The White House. Osborne will perform while the First Family unwraps Christmas presents among private guests. The White House will be filled with Osborne’s rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “Overjoyed” and “Ribbon in the Sky” while intertwining traditional Christmas tunes such as “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” and “Carol of the Bells.”
