Diana DeGarmo tweeted earlier today that she will miss tomorrow night’s Nine to Five performance in Indianapolis, IN.
“Howdy folks, sorry for the bad news, but I will be OUT of TOMORROW nights show (Friday & just Friday) due to a family emergency. I do plan to be back at the Saturday matinee & be in for the rest of the weekend. Thanks for understanding. xo, D”
According to information I received from a fan of Diana’s she’ll be missing tomorrow night’s show to attend the funeral of her estranged father, Shelton DeGarmo.

Shelton was a member of Philologia Masonic Lodge # 178 F. & A.M., Yaarab Shrine, Potentate Escort, Royal Order of Jesters, # 91 and the Bilikin Club. He is survived by his wife, Audrey DeGarmo, children, Chris DeGarmo, Craig DeGarmo, Christy Kill, Joseph Harvey and Diana DeGarmo, brothers, Larry DeGarmo & wife Darline, Eddie DeGarmo & wife Susan, Mike DeGarmo & wife Wanda, several aunts, uncles & cousins. Funeral Services will be held Friday January 14, 2011 at 1:00 pm at Wages & Sons Stone Mountain Chapel. Interment will be in Piggot, Arkansas. The family will receive friends Thursday from 2:00 until 4:00 pm and 6:00 until 8:00 pm at Wages & Sons Stone Mountain Chapel.
