Much-loved entertainer Maria Venuti is nearing one year since her stroke but continues to make a recovery with the help of daughter, Bianca.
Entertainment reporter Peter Ford told The Morning Show she will sing for friends at an upcoming gathering.
“On the first anniversary they are going to have a luncheon to celebrate just how far she’s come,” he said.
“The plan is she’s going to pick up the microphone and do a number with her old mate Trevor Ashley.
“One of the really quirky things about Maria’s recovery is …. she can actually sing better than she can talk.
“It’s all very modified -it’s nothing like it was. But she can actually pick up a microphone and belt out a number.”
