Michael Takes The Stage For Little Kids Rock’s 10th Anniversary Gala Along with Music Legends

Date October 23, 2012

Many thanks to Michael’s gorgeous wife, Stacey Vuduris for his amazing photo with Bruce Springsteen!

Little Kids Rock celebrated their 10th anniversary with their Right2Rock gala at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom, October 16,2012. This was an extraordinary charity gala that included musical greats who came to pay tribute to Steven Van Zandt, recipient of their “Big Man Of The Year Award“.

We are so thrilled and proud that Michael was asked to perform as part of such a special and star studded evening. What an amazing night for him…a dream come true!!

Included in the very impressive line up of performers were, Bruce Springsteen, Steven Van Zandt, Darlene Love, Elvis Costello, Dion, Tom Morello, Kris Allen, Southside Johnny, Ruben Blades, Gary US Bonds, Michael Des Barres, Jesse Malin, Jake Clemons and The Midtown Men.

Read a great account of the evening from Steve Wiserman via 104.3 WOMC CBS local media here.

Maureen Van Zandt, said it best when she tweeted from her account @MVZaGoGo: “Salvation indeed! @Michael_Johns just tore the roof off this joint”

Longtime MJO member and friend, Tara, was generously invited to attend the evening by Maureen Van Zandt and she brought us all back a fabulous video of MJ singing Little Steven’s “Salvation”. SMOKIN’ HOT! Thank-you so much Tara 😉

Here he is…performing an outstanding rendition of “SALVATION” with the E Street Band – our very own Mr. Michael Johns!
