NEW YORK, Sept. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The T.J. Martell Foundation is proud to announce the addition of Bleachers, Us The Duo and Bea Miller to their impressive lineup of performers for its 15th Annual Family Day on Sunday, September 28, 2014 at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Grammy award-winning musician, Jack Antonoff (Steel Train, Fun.), who released the debut album for his newest musical endeavor Bleachers on RCA Records is excited to be a part of Family Day – “I’m honored to be performing at Family Day this year honoring Tom Corson. Tom, along with my entire RCA Records family, has been incredibly supportive of me and of Bleachers and I am thrilled to be able to be there to support him and such a good cause.” Bleachers’ debut album, entitled “Strange Desire,” has been critically acclaimed since day one with the first single “I Wanna Get Better” quickly rising to #1 on the alternative radio chart.

Michael and Carissa Alvarado of Us the Duo are another welcome addition to this year’s Family Day roster. This husband and wife team have gained quick exposure with their second album, “No Matter Where You Are,” which has raced to #9 on the iTunes pop chart since its re-release via Republic Records. The social media-savvy duo have also made a name for themselves on Vine with their 6-second musical covers and arrangements – gaining over 3.9 million followers. Us The Duo recently signed on to Oprah’s “The Life You Want Weekend” tour, and their single, “No Matter Where You Are” will be featured in the upcoming animated film, “The Book Of Life.”

As a top-ten finalist on the second season of The X Factor with her poignant and soulful renditions of songs such as Dido’s “White Flag,” recent lineup addition Bea Miller is sure to captivate Family Day audiences with her haunting but gorgeously powerful voice. Earlier this spring, Bea released a debut EP, Young Blood, on Hollywood Records. The EP, full of sharp-edged pop songs revealing both a moody intensity and her fiery rock-and-roll spirit, hit #2 on the iTunes Pop Chart.

Joining Bleachers, Us The Duo and Bea Miller at Family Day will be global superstar and philanthropist Pitbull, who will perform live at the event and receive The T.J. Martell Foundation’s Family Day Artist Achievement Award. Joining Pitbull will be rising stars and Island recording artists, Timeflies, who have recently topped the iTunes pop album chart. TV/Film star and multi-platinum recording artist Hilary Duff, who recently signed to RCA, will round out the line-up as the event’s guest host.
