Put them all together and you have the power of music in the movies.
“These are the songs you remember from the movies, Alex Santoriello said. “They live on in your heart.”
Santoriello along with Donna Moore will bring them to life with a “Sing the Movies” performance, May 11 at 7 p.m. in Savannah Center.
That performance, along another Santoriello production — “A Musical Salute to Rodgers & Hammerstein” on May 10 at 7 p.m. in Savannah Center — will be used for a good cause.
“We want to help the people of the Ukraine,” Santoriello said. He added that $5,500 has already been donated for Ukraine and more is on the way.
