Kayla Burgess Performs Disney Song at Color Blast 5K [Video]

The Owensboro Color Blast 5K is in the books.  Over 3,000 people turned out to support six different local agencies supporting children and adults with developmental disabilities.  As usual, the day was amazing.  There were color blasts along the race route.  There was a HUGE after-party with color flying through the air and onto our clothes.  And there were very emotional and moving performances on the stage.  For me, Kayla Burgess stole the show.  Watch this video.  This gal had the crowd, Jaclyn and me in tears.
