On Friday, February 10th, 2006 Kenny and Crosby Loggins performed an intimate concert at SOhO Restaurant and Music Club in Santa Barbara to benefit the Next Wave Foundation. Started by Bella Loggins and friends, the Next Wave Foundation is an environmental organization created to empower youths aged eight to eighteen, to get involved in enjoying and protecting the world's oceans, beaches, and the natural environment through education, research, conservation, and activism. Kenny is extremely proud of Bella and the active role she is taking with environmental concerns as she follows in his footsteps.
Crosby and the Namedroppers started the evening with a rocking set that really heated up the audience. Proud Papa Kenny, sitting in the audience, was beaming from ear to ear as he watched his prodigy perform original material for an extremely enthusiastic crowd. After a short intermission, the evening kicked into high gear as Crosby and Bella joined Papa Kenny on Return to Pooh Corner, Danny's Song, and Leap of Faith. The One That Got Away brought tears to everyone's eyes and the highlight of the evening came when a shy Bella reprised her introduction to Conviction of the Heart, trying so hard to recapture the innocence she possessed as a two-year-old.
This magical evening was enjoyed by all who attended and proved that Kenny and his beautiful children are making this world a better place in which to live. - submitted by Debbie & Gregg S
