Carly Charity Appearances

Carly made an appearance on behalf of the charity LA’s Best – a charity that provides after-school care for children.

Check out this video of her singing Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me”.  I have not found any other online announcements or videos for this event.

Also Carly is scheduled to appear at the Orange Count BBQ Festival on June 10th in Costa Mesa, CA along with the band Sugar Ray & fellow Idol alum Ace Young.  This event benefits the charity Kristie’s Foundation for Critically Ill Children.

Here’s the promo poster:

Carly’s Mom Gets Married

Just thought we would take a moment to congratulate Carly’s Mom Marie on her recent marriage.

She got married while visiting Carly in Las Vegas.  Here’s a lovely picture of (from left to right) Carly, her Mom, and her sister Shannon:

 

 

Congrats again Marie!

People Magazine – Idol Issue

We have a copy of the photo and the text transcript from the portion of People magazine’s Idol “Where Are They Now?” special issue pertaining to Carly.

Here’s the article:

Four years after her Idol exit, the Irish-born singer is hanging with The King: She performs in the Las
Vegas Cirque Du Soleil show Viva Elvis. “It’s been honestly just amazing,” says Smithson, 28. “I’ve always
been a big fan of Cirque Du Soleil. I actually didn’t believe the casting lady when she called and asked if I
would be coming. I thought it was one of my friends playing a joke.”

On her weekly break, she heads to L.A. to work with her band We Are The Fallen on their next album.
She finds the contrast delightfully disconcerting: Viva, she says, “is very upbeat-everything that I’m not!
It’s like going from my band to Glee!”

Something else that’s new and fun: getting to stay for the entire show. During her first big stage gig, in
Les Miserables, she recalls, “I was 9 years old. I’ve never actually seen the second half! You are kind of
shuffled in and out, because children can’t be there that long.” This year, she says, her husband, tattoo
artist Todd Smithson, “has promised that I will see the second half of Les Miz!”
