Boyd has invited Bonnie Pointer of the Pointer Sisters, to be special guests for the debut weekend Sept. 3 and 4. She’ll perform hits like “Heaven Must Have Sent You,” and “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)” and with her sister, Anita, they will perform their Pointer Sister favorites “Jump,” “Fire” and “I’m So Excited,” Bonnie Pointer said.
“We’ll let the spirit move us,” she said.
Having the Pointer Sisters and other acts like Ali-Ollie Woodson, former lead vocalist for the Temptations, and Don Black of the Platters, will be a great way to introduce the new hotel to people in Burbank, said Byron Newsome, night auditor at the Hampton Inn.
“I know the people coming to see the show will get something out of it, and not just the entertainment,” Newsome said. “[Boyd] gives me a positive vibe. [The show] is going to bring new people here and will be a positive thing for the entire city of Burbank.”
