Adam Shenk was barely old enough to weigh in on his career options when destiny determined his calling. After his parents observed their three-year-old singing original songs into a tape recorder, they found ways to encourage his gift. When he was 11, he earned a slot at Princeton, N.J.s prestigious American Boychoir School. Not a bad initiation for a teen-ager born in Indiana and growing up in Virginiaâ€™s Shenandoah Valley. His education continued at Michiganâ€™s Interlochen Center for the Arts, then the Boston Conservatory and Berklee College of Music, where he earned a Bachelorâ€™s in Songwriting. In 2007, Shenk scored an audition for the semi-finals of MTVs popular Making the Band 4, in New York, performing for host P. Diddy. That same year, he served as songwriter, producer and singer for his first EP, the seven-song If Ya Like This. In 2010, with roots firmly established in New York, his second album, Suitcases, focuses on transition and change. Produced by Ayhan Sahin with music and lyrics by Shenk, the 14-track disc meshes pop and contemporary R&B with old-school soul and shades of jazz. Imagine classic Simply Red infused with the youth and verve of Chris Brown. In addition to performances at New Yorkâ€™s Rockwood Music Hall, Cutting Room, The Bitter End and Bowery Poetry Club, Shenk has headlined a series of live gigs at Pianos.

“On Saturday February 9, over 200 Michael Jackson fans gathered at the Sage Theater in Times Square, the heart of New York City to celebrate the release of Thriller 25. Michael posters covered the walls, memorabilia on display, as the new album played and fans discussed their MJ memories. The event was organized by performer Pete Carter of Toms River, New Jersey. A fan since the age of seven, Pete called dozens of performers and crew members together to make this event possible. Now you can share in all this excitement by going to http://www.michaeljackson.com/fanevents.php”
