    Bernadette affectionately known as “Bernie” was part of my life many moons ago. Our group of a$$ociates which included her son, Bruno Mars then known as “Little Elvis” spent our nights and weekends singing and dancing at the Miramar Hotels Banana Patch lounge. One of her favorite songs was “Turn the Beat Around” by Vicki Sue Robinson. She really turned that song into her own! My heart goes out to their family. May you rest in peace Bernie. We will miss your beautiful spirit!
