The invitees also got to listen to Christy as he performed with Aslan once again at the marriage reception for the very first time since Night For Christy event. Bride Adrienne Kelly told that they were thrilled to see Christy is performing. They did not expected that. It was his call.
The fifty two year told that his come back to rehearsing was as an end result of finishing his chemotherapy treatment. Christy told that since ending the treatment his energy levels are high. This is a really very special day for Rodney and Adrienne and it was great to be there with the band to share it with them.
