Currently on tour with country star Blake Shelton for his Friends & Heroes 2019 tour, Alaina spent the evening getting to know the group of Diamond Resorts members by posing for photos, and even inviting a few to dance and sing with her on stage.

The Orlando Forum is one of Central Florida’s newest live performance venues and features 6,000 square feet of space plus a completely customizable two-level stage. It is currently home to the Rock Dinner Show, a high-energy entertainment and dinner experience for all ages.
