Global superstar Kelly Clarkson and Grammy-nominated The Fray are joining forces for the summer concert. Since bursting onto the music scene 10 years ago, Clarkson has sold more than 20 million albums, has had 10 singles in the Top Ten on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, and has received numerous awards including two Grammys. Clarkson’s most recent album Stronger is certified Gold and includes Top 10 hits “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” and “Mr. Know It All.” Alternative rock band The Fray, known for their hit songs “How to Save a Life” and “Over My Head (Cable Car),” has achieved worldwide fame and has been ranked on Billboard’s “Artists of the Decade” lists.

17 time Grammy winner and legendary performer Tony Bennett will be performing his classic repertoire of the Great American Songbook and will share the evening with young sensation Jackie Evancho on August 31st. Bennett, who celebrated his 85th birthday last year, garnered his first #1 CD with the release of Duets II. He is a multiple Emmy Award winner and has been named an NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) Jazz Master, and was honored by the United Nations for his humanitarian efforts. He will be joined by Jackie Evancho who has achieved big fame at a young age. First gaining nationwide recognition at age 10 on America’s Got Talent, Evancho is the youngest Top Ten Debut artist in U.S. history and the youngest solo artist to ever go platinum. Last February, Evancho sang before President Obama and other leaders at the U.S. National Prayer Breakfast, and she is scheduled to sing in Russia in June at the opening ceremonies of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
