ABOUT Brittny - Vocals
Sister Brittny has been performing professionally since 1996 when her talent was recognized by Broadway director Martin Charnin. NY’s Capital District was awed by Britt’s sudden rise to fame when she was cast in the leading role of Annie performing with stars Nell Carter, John Schuck and then Sally Struthers both on the Broadway stage and in the subsequent national tour, a “job” that lasted until the show closed in March of 1999. During that time she was privy to performances on national television shows such as The Tony Awards, The Today Show, Rosie O’Donnell, and CBS This Morning. Since her return home 7 years ago, she has been visited by a Japanese film crew as well as People Magazine. She performed before over 20,000 people at 107.7 WGNA’s Countryfest 2003, the largest country music event in the Northeast, a result of her obvious crossover appeal.
