Las Vegas, NV (March 8) Every Saturday night members of the Sterling Club on Paradise Road enjoy Kelly Clinton-Holmes standard show of song and dance but tonight the members had a rare treat. They had the privilege of an intimate moment with a friend.
Kelly did a one-woman show in New York and it was something New York had never seen before. She was asked “why aren’t you on Saturday Night Live”? Kelly was gracious enough to share that show with her friends tonight at The Sterling Club.
Kelly grew up in New Jersey with an Italian mother and an Irish Father, where she inherited those freckles and her beautiful red hair. Her mother was the typical Italian mother and her father the typical Irish liqueur-drinking father. During her teen years, her parents moved her to Las Vegas fighting and screaming. With song and dance, her one-woman show chronicles her life from New Jersey as a child to present day. Kelly survived the move to Las Vegas, became a background singer for Wayne Newton, traveled the world, kissed a few frogs, and then met Clint Holmes, the love of her life.
Kelly was dionogised with Rheumatoid Arthritis about the time she met Clint Holmes. Clint went with Kelly to her bone density scan where the doctor advised her she had 80 year old bones. Any intimacy could crush her spine but Clint said he would take that chance and he has supported Kelly ever since. This is a love story; Kelly is lovely, energetic, and so very talented. With medication Kelly has survived her condition and for those who want a personal experience with Kelly Clinton-Holmes, please catch her one-woman show at the Suncoast Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada April 28-29.
