NEW YORK, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The T.J. Martell Foundation is proud to announce the addition of Greyson Chance and Emblem3 to their impressive lineup of artists for its 14th Annual Family Day on Sunday, September 15th, 2013 at Roseland Ballroom in New York City. "I am honored and excited to be performing for an organization that truly helps our society," says Greyson Chance who, at fifteen years old, has already had a number one single, performed live on Ellen and Good Morning America and has shared stages with iCarly's Miranda Cosgrove and Big Time Rush, previous Family Day honorees.
As the breakout band on the hit show X Factor, amassing over 15 million YouTube views, Emblem3 is another amazing addition to this year's event. According to the band members, "We are so excited to be performing at this year's Family Day with such an incredible lineup of artists supporting the T.J. Martell Foundation. We are stoked to be able to do our part to help in the fight against leukemia, cancer and AIDS."
Joining Chance and Emblem3 at Family Day is multi-Grammy award-winning singer Jason Mraz who will perform live along with Ed Sheeran and rising pop star Austin Mahone. Both Sheeran and Mahone are taking a break from their sold out tour with superstar Taylor Swift to perform at the event. Disney breakout star Bridgit Mendler from the hit series "Good Luck Charlie" will round out the line-up as the event's guest host.
Family Day is one of the music industry's signature events providing a spectacular day full of fun games, carnival activities and food to raise money for leukemia, cancer and AIDS research. Having steadily grown into one of the Martell Foundation's most successful events, Family Day has raised close to $5 million for Martell-funded research at twelve hospitals across the country. Last year's sold out event honored Grammy-award winning band Train with performances by Cobra Starship, Cody Simpson and new singing sensation Ariana Grande.
