Holiday Wishes: Toledo’s Golden Voice celebrates ‘Home’Written by Zach Davis | | email@example.com
Singing holiday songs is nothing new for Sheri LaFontaine.
Dubbed “Toledo’s Golden Voice,” LaFontaine contributed a mainstay to “Holiday Wishes” with “Home for the Holidays.”
“It is upbeat and swinging,” LaFontaine said. “I did all three parts on it. It was a dream of mine to do the alto and soprano and it was a lot of fun.”
The track was produced for LaFontaine’s Christmas album, “Wonder.”
“Christmas albums bring people together; we all love Christmas,” LaFontaine said. “It has just brought me so many different places around the holidays; I just can’t believe the calls that I am getting in from all over the City of Toledo and down South.”
LaFontaine has been singing professionally since she was 19 years old. She traveled on tour before returning to Toledo to be with her family, taking a radio job hosting “The Ike & Sheri Show” on WPOS 102.3 from 6-9:45 a.m. Monday through Friday.
“Make-A-Wish has a flawless reputation for making a child smile and making dreams come true,” LaFontaine said. “If I can be a part of anything like that, I want to jump on board with that.”
