Singer-songwriter Jerry Riopelle will return to the Celebrity Theatre to ring in 2013. Riopelle began his career as a songwriter but started singing his own songs in the early 70's. He's such a fixture at New Year's Eve celebrations that Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon deemed Dec. 31 "Jerry Riopelle Day" in 2005. Riopelle is best known for the hits "Walkin' On Water," "Blues On My Table," Red Ball Texas Flyer" and "Naomi's Song."
