New York, New York (PressExposure) July 02, 2013 -- Today, singer-songwriter Michael Pollack, who gained national attention following his epic performance with Billy Joel earlier this year, will join "X-Factor" finalist Carly Rose Sonenclar as the opening act for her August 10th performance at Manhattan's Best Buy Theater. Pollack, who has performed at legendary New York locations like The Cutting Room and BB King Blues Club, has been on a promotional tour in support of his new singles "Chances Are," "Get Well" and "More Than Ever," that has included stops on The Today Show, CNN and The Jeff Probst Show.
"I am thrilled for the opportunity to open up for Carly Rose," said Michael Pollack. "Following everything that happened since the Billy Joel performance, this is a great opportunity for me to showcase my new original material and help reach more fans with my music."
At only 14, Carly has already achieved national acclaim thanks to her show stopping performances on "X-Factor" as well as her roles on Broadway. Carly has starred as Young Cosette in "Les Miserables" and originated the principal character of Chloe in Wonderland on Broadway. Her mix of soul and pop music has attracted fans of all ages in dozens of countries across the globe, with her YouTube videos regularly earning over 100 Million views.
"I am so excited to have Michael Pollack opening my Best Buy show," said Carly. "He is such a talented artist and an amazing pianist...I can't wait!"
In January of 2013, during a Question & Answer session at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Michael boldly asked Billy Joel if he could accompany him on stage for a performance of "New York State of Mind." Michael immediately won over Joel and the crowd with his incredible piano playing skills causing footage of the performance to go viral and launching Michael's career.
Following the Best Buy show with Carly, Michael will continue to debut new music, leading up to an EP release this fall.
