Billy Valentine to join Denise Thimes for benefit concert on Thursday, November 3 at the Sheldon

Singer Denise Thimes will present her seventh annual concert benefiting the Mildred Thimes Foundation for pancreatic cancer research at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 3 at the Sheldon Concert Hall.

Thimes' special guest for evening will be singer Billy Valentine (pictured), who's perhaps best known for singing the theme and providing funky vocal effects for the soundtrack of the ABC-TV series Boston Legal. Valentine also was a member of the original touring company of the musical The Wiz; sang lead vocals for the fictional titular group of the Robert Townsend film The Five Heartbeats; and has written songs for Ray Charles, Simply Red, the Neville Brothers, and others.

Tickets are $40 for VIP orchestra, which includes pre- and post-concert receptions; $35 for orchestra seating; or $30 for the balcony; and are on sale now via Metrotix.
