Lisa IS the Lady

With stars in her eyes, the very talented Alisha IS Lady Gaga.
A packed Merrie England bar on Blackpool's North Pier last night gave this newest tribute act to the global superstar a massive seal of approval, with the audience of hundreds up on their feet and begging for more when the curtain came down on her final set.
Alisha, real name Lisa Jones, has spent two years perfecting her tribute act and kindly chose to unleash it with a charity gig with proceeds shared between the Happy House and the Fylde's Trinity Hospice.
Lisa, well-known on the Blackpool showbiz scene, had put together a full show with a great line-up of supporting acts, including George Michael tribute, Mark Jay, all giving their time for free.
She'd also colllected some fabulous raffle prizes from generous local businesses, and a collage of pictures, signed by boxing great Joe Frazier, sold at auction for £100.
Andrea Manders,  Lynn McCluskey and Elizabeth Gomm were there respresenting the Happy House and selling raffle tickets and at the end of the evening Lynn gave our thanks to Lisa and all those who took part.
We haven't got a final figure yet, but will let you know here as soon as we have.
Another big thank you from all the Happy House family to Lisa for putting on such a fabulous evening and to all those who took part or contributed in anyway (a special mention to Sue who volunteered to collect any loose change in our Happy House bucket).
