Country entertainer SHERRY LYNN will perform two shows during the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games being held in the Princeton, New Jersey area. The eight-day event (June 14-21) features sports competitions and activities at venues throughout Mercer County, New Jersey, including Princeton University, Rider University, The College of New Jersey, Mercer County Park and several area private schools. Lynn will entertain June 16 from 3-4 p.m. at “Corporate Park” within Mercer County Park and on June 19 from 4 – 5 p.m. at “Special Olympics Town” on the campus of College of New Jersey for participating athletes and coaches only. In addition to the many showcased sports, Special Olympics athletes will participate in multiple events including an opening ceremony at Prudential Center, closing ceremony at Sun National Bank Center, a boardwalk themed Special Olympics Town, a Special Olympics Unified Sports® Festival, and much more.
Sherry is excited to share her music with the athletes and supporters involved in the Special Olympics and the engaging songstress notes, “This is a cause that’s dear to my heart and it is an absolute honor to be included.”
Lynn will travel to New Jersey straight from her second consecutive year of performances during Nashville’s CMA Music Festival. Her hot new single, “Girls Will Be Girls,” from her sophomore CD, A BEAUTIFUL LIFE, has club-goers hitting the dance floor as it rockets up the Country charts, and the fun-filled video is airing on CMT.com, ZUUS Country TV and regional video outlets across America. Last year Sherry made her Grand Ole Opry debut as she sang with superstar Crystal Gayle on their hit duet, “Beautiful Life.”
The Woodbury, New Jersey native is currently splitting her time between Sewell, NJ and Nashville, TN. Sherry began her career in 2006 when she opened for Sammy Kershaw at Pitman, New Jersey’s historic Broadway Theatre. Since then, she has shared the stage with Miranda Lambert, Crystal Gayle, the Oak Ridge Boys, LeAnn Rimes, Randy Hauser, Gene Watson, John Rich and Chris Young.
