Buffalo's Own: America's Got Talent

(Buffalo, NY) On March 15, 2009, classically trained pianist Lenny Revell, arrived in New York City to perform for NBC's "America's Got Talent." Revell was invited to first round auditions at The Jakob K. Javits Convention Center on 35th Street and 11th Ave. Upon checking in, Mr. Revell met with Riverworks Records before his scheduled performance.

Asked to play only cover songs for the audition, Revell tanked out Jerry Lee Lewis' "Great Balls of Fire" followed by Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come" gaining the respect of three ancillary judges present. After discussing venues in Buffalo, Lenny was introduced to the President of Zero Burn Records, Buffy Rouse.

"I am excited to travel and take a chance with my music", said Revell. "Performers often have to step outside the box, you never know who you will meet or where a simple connection may lead." When asked about his chances appearing on TV, Revell said, "That is not my end goal, I hope I make it but the people and producers I met while in NYC are invaluable resources."

"America's Got Talent" is a hit summer series premiering its third season on NBC in June on Tuesdays. Presented by "American Idol'" producers, "America's Got Talent" showcases performers at the forefront of American culture presided by judges David Hasselhoff, Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan.

Simon Cowell's SYCO Television, Cecile Frot-Coutaz ("American Idol"), Georgie Hurford-Jones ("Britain's Got Talent"), Jason Raff ("Clash of the Choirs") and James Sunderland ("Dancing on Ice") are executive producers.

Lenny Revell can be reached HERE and to sign up to his email list. Revell has performed all over Buffalo and Western New York, NYC, Florida and Toronto. One of Buffalo's own musicians has a chance to appear on NBC, as well as working with several International multi-media companies in conjunction with Simon Cowell.
