TELEVISION INTERVIEW WITH BRITTNY ON TUESDAY, MAY 24 AT 2:00 pm - May 22, 2005

This Tues. afternoon at 2:00 PM on Time Warner's Channel 18, Brittny Kissinger's interview w/television journalist Tom O'Conner will air. It's an awesome interview. Following the interview, she performs 2 songs from her CD with her brother Zac and then closes with the song TOMORROW sung acapella. It's very focused on her childhood in the professional theatre realm and she virtually tells her story about how it all happened for her.
Brittny was only 7 yrs. old and in the second grade at Milton Terrace when she was hired to play the orphan July in Martin Charnin's 20th Anniversary Production of Annie. Within 3 months, she found herself in the actual starring role as Annie, a role she played on both the B'way stage and on a nat'l tour for well over 2 yrs. of her life.
However, this recent interview (Feb.'05) will also bring you up to speed with what is currently happening in her life which continues to be filled with music and music performances.
