A New Jersey family that has been called a modern-day “Partridge Family” thanks to their viral appearances on “America’s Got Talent” will be bringing their talents to the Seaside Heights boardwalk this week.
The Sharpe Family Singers have been described as this generation’s “quintessential family band.” Having met on the Broadway stage, Ron and Barbra Sharpe built a family singing group blending family connection, positive messaging, and song. Sharing the same passion for music as their parents, siblings Samantha, Logan, and twins Aidan and Connor took to social media to entertain millions worldwide with their creative and witty musical video content. The family lives in Basking Ridge, N.J.
During their audition for America’s Got Talent, Simon Cowell recently called them “Apple Pie” as they represent classic American family values. The family hopes to share their love of performing with the world to inspire others to build strong familial bonds by finding their own connective “harmonies.”
The Sharpe family is scheduled to perform as part of the Friday, July 14 edition of “Broadway Meets the Beach,” which has become a popular tradition that brings Broadway stars to the Franklin Avenue stage, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
In addition to the Sharpes’ performance, Lucia Giannetta, Charlie Marcus, John Cudia, Jen Perry, the cast of “Mike and Mindy’s Wild Weekend Jam,” Korie Lee Blossey, Jackie Nuzzo, Theresa Carlomagno, Josh LeRose, Tyler Ricker, Brayden Morgan, and the OCAC Microphonic Choir are set to perform. The performers have starred in Les Miserables, Peter Pan the Musical, A Chorus Line and other world-famous shows.
The Sharpe family, for their part, has garnered more than 2 billion views online with their music, and parents Ron and Barbra themselves shared their first kiss on a Broadway stage.
