List of Powerhouse Performers Continues to Grow for Make A Wish Hudson Valley B'way Benefit Concert

Press Release ( - WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Mar 20, 2017 - Five more talented Broadway show performers have been announced for the much anticipated Frank Wildhorn & Friends Broadway Concert that will benefit Make A Wish® Hudson Valley at 8 PM, Friday, April 7. The special performance will be staged at the historic Tarrytown Music Hall, 13 Main Street, Tarrytown, NY.

Joining the growing list of powerhouse performers—headlined by legendary Broadway composer/songwriter Wildhorn—and Constantine Maroulis (American Idol, Rock of Ages, Jekyll and Hyde) and Carrie Manolakos (Mama Mia, Wicked) will also be:

Carly Rose Sonenclar (Singer/songwriter who played Chloe in Frank’s Wonderland on Broadway, Young Cosette in Les Miserables and then went on to become the runner-up on The X-Factor in 2012).

Sasha Allen (Singer who began her career in the music industry as backing vocalist for Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, John Legend, and Usher.  Later was in Hair on Broadway and rose to fame as a finalist on the fourth season of The Voice in 2013).

Kevin Kern (Performs frequently with Wildhorn in concert, and recently finished tour of Finding Neverland in which he played the lead role of JM Barrie.  Other Broadway: Finding Neverland, The Bridges of Madison County, First Date, The Wedding Singer, Les Miserables.)

Maddie Baillio (Played the lead role of Tracy Turnblad in NBC’s live Hairspray broadcast last fall. Just a year ago, the up-and-coming star performed as a member of the chorus of college students in Wildhorn’s first benefit concert for Make A Wish® Hudson Valley).

Nina Howland (Featured in the recent Broadway Kids Against Bullying: I Have A Voice music video and is scheduled to sing the song with Carrie Manolakos at the April 7 concert.)

The concert will mark the second year-in-a-row that Wildhorn is “devoting his time and talents to help the chapter reach the goal of granting the wish to every eligible child in the Hudson Valley for which we are deeply grateful,”  said Thomas J. Conklin, President and CEO of  Make A Wish® Hudson Valley.

Conklin noted:  “Given the cash cost of granting a wish for each child ranges between $7,500 and $10,000, the generosity of our supporters for these signature events is so critically important to fulfilling our mission of making a difference in the lives of the wish kids and their families.”

Known for both his musicals and popular songs including the number one international hit song, “Where Do Broken Hearts Go”—made famous by Whitney Houston – and the song “Gold”, heard at the opening ceremonies of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City, Utah, Wildhorn was the first composer to have three Broadway musicals running on Broadway simultaneously: Jekyll and Hyde, The Scarlet Pimpernel and The Civil War.

Ticket prices for Frank Wildhorn & Friends Broadway Concert (with all proceeds to benefit the Make A Wish® Hudson Valley) range from $35 to $200. Premium tickets ($200) also include a meet and greet with the performers after the show.  Tickets can be purchased by visiting or by calling 877-840-0457.
