The Origin of Mr. Danke Schoen - Dancing with the Stars!

"Danke Schoen...Oh darlin'..."  That golden voice.  Wait is that a guy or a girl?  It's a very young Wayne Newton. 

Wayne is not so young these days as he clearly showed America on Dancing with the Stars.

For years I have been told I resemble a young Wayne Newton.  A few years ago I took the resemblance to a new level.  As a room sponsor for the Contra Costa Realtors in Motion I  to a had to give a speech to a room of 250 people.  Boy was I nervous!

Now I had been attending the meetings for almost 2 years at this point in relative anonymity.  My boss said it would be a good place to network with Realtors, so I went.  I generally sat at the back of the room and hung out with the same 5 people each week.  I remember looking at the Broker's tour sheet (a list of homes that would be open that day) just circling properties so it looked like I was doing something.

Fast forward 2 years, I know a few more people and can recognize most of the local players.  It is my week to speak.  Most people get in front of the group and bore us to tears talking about how they offer great rates, and they have this program and that program.  O.K. I did a bit of that myself, it was my first time alright!

Ahh, but that's when I separated myself.  I pulled the mic from the podium and ...

At first nothing came out.  I had come to my big crescendo and I froze.  I took a deep breath and and began belting out "Danke Schoen"  with a few word variations to make it topical to Real Estate.  At first I was singing in that Wayne Newton falsetto, but soon settled into my strong tenor voice.  I finished my couple of verses and received thunderous applause from the room.  The singing and hard work have become my trademark.

Before a few years ago I did not know who Wayne Newton was.  Now I must thank him, for through his music I am truly living a thankful life.
