On Wednesday, Nov 3rd, I have the honor of appearing at the NJPAC in Newark for the 8th annual Concert for Kids to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs in New Jersey. The concert, which will be my only New York area appearance this year, will be hosted by Jersey’s own, Joe Piscopo, the former Saturday Night Live comedian and entertainer, who is the volunteer spokesperson for Boys & Girls Clubs in New Jersey.

I know Joe well---very funny guy--- and his dedication to his beloved Boys and Girls Club of New Jersey (serving over 120 thousand kids) is phenomenal. So my foundation, the MBC, has donated a block of seats for 20 plus kids...and I have made my personal donation as well.

I am asking you here to support this amazing event. There is no contribution too small, and for those of you most awesome fans who wish to help—tickets are still available as are sponsorships. Individual tickets can be purchased at the NJPAC box office at 1-888-GONJPAC or online at www.njpac.org. For more information on the Concert for Kids, visit www.bgcnj.org or call 201-882-3812. Sponsorships are also available and include a reception and the show.

So come on Wednesday night and lend a hand to an amazing organization that assist youth achieve their full potential!! This year’s focus is especially important- as the funds raised through the concert are distributed to each local Boys & Girls Club in New Jersey to support their Fund-A-Dream Program. Clubs identify dreamers and, in addition to providing emotional support and encouragement, they will provide what is often the last barrier, financial assistance. Through this program, Boys & Girls Clubs are able to cultivate and support a special talent or interest and, in so doing, encourage a young person to aim for heights previously thought unattainable.

A dream can be as simple as wanting to learn how to swim at summer camp, or as grand as wanting to attend Juilliard. Dreams may include striving to become the first college graduate in one's family, or hoping to attend an elite training program in dance or music. Realized dreams are a powerful tool in building self esteem. They create entrepreneurs with innovative ideas, teachers with the power to influence students, and artists with the ability to portray beauty through expression. So, come on, see a great show and help a child’s dream come true!

I just joined this your website a minute ago after listening to one of your christmas songs.
Such a pleasant surprise to see you working with Lara. Your voices are both GOLD!

I'd love to one day record a song with you! I currently on tour with "Yanni" and working on my 2nd CD... Also working on a Christmas song right now and thought I'd check out some of your work for inspiration.
Much Love to you!

Hi Michael, I'm still so in awe after the performance you gave last night at NJPAC!!!! You gave us a phenominal show last night that was amazing in every way!! OMG your voice is so pure and strong right now, whatever you are doing, please keep it up!. Between your voice, the venue's sound quality and the band now so tight performing together, we were totally blown away. Thanks for giving us a wonderful night and smiling at us when you spotted us. We tried to move out of your way so you could get up the steps to the stage during WAMLAW!!We had a blast rocking out down front during the second half!! The Boys/Girls Clubs concert was a BLAST!!! This one stood out as one of my top favs in all my years traveling to see you perform!!! Wishing you safe travels till next time!! Thank you!!!!!!!!
Robin in Maryland!!! :)
