The following video is a red white and blue tribute to honor Alan Bankert and his service to our country. The music is the tribute, the lights were meant to enhance the somber and moving rendition of Il Silenzio. Good evening, my name is Cortney and welcome to the 2016 Kolak Christmas Light Show. We are going to start this year like we have never done in the past by playing Il Silenzio as a tribute to Alan Bankert. Alans family will be the recipient of this years donations and this song will be a tribute to Alan and his service to our country as a member of the Army National Guard. We will tell you more about Alan and his family later but they would like to extend this tribute to all military families in our listening area that have lost love ones while on active duty or in civilian life. This rendition of Il Silenzio is being played by 12 yr old Mellissa Venama.
