Variety’s A Star is Born

The Michigan Celebrity Hall of Fame, which is housed at Paul Glantz’s Emagine Royal Oak and Star Lanes center, has four new members dubbed The Voices of Detroit. WJR’s morning show host Paul W. Smith, Crain’s Detroit Business publisher Mary Kramer, and Fox 2 News’ Monica Gayle and Huel Perkins were inducted into the hall at a benefit for Variety. It attracted 350 (with $350, $250 or $150 tickets) to the entertainment complex and was chaired by Debbie Wellman and Felicia Palazzola Shaw, the latter for the second year. Shaw’s heartfelt remarks explaining her and her husband’s “…passion to help children” were every bit as eloquent as the speeches of the pros being honored.
