Hey Friends -
Still trying to find the perfect gift for that Brian Stokes Mitchell music-lover in your life?
I want to let you know that CD Baby is charging only 1¢ for shipping when you purchase my CD, “Simply
Broadway” on CDBaby.com between December 1st and 3rd.
This is the album that USA Today chose as “One of the best albums of 2013”!
As you probably know, I have never been happier with an album than this one. It came out exactly as I
envisioned it in my “mind’s ear” when I conceived it. The album covers about 75 years from the “Golden Age” of American Musical Theatre performed in the simplest
way possible - just voice and piano - well not just any piano - a beautiful 9ft. Hamburg Steinway Grand played by my brilliant pianist and co-arranger Tedd Firth. All of the songs were recorded with
Tedd in the same space and at the same time - just two artists having a ball making some beautiful music together.
For a singer, performing with one instrument is like working without a net. It allows the listener to hear the
songs - and the singer - at their simplest, purest, most exposed best.
So if that kind of thing excites your mind, heart and ears, mark Dec. 1-3 it in your calendar and check out this
great limited offer. Whether you buy 1 disc or 100, it’s only ONE PENNY for standard domestic or international shipping – TOTAL.

Thanks and here’s simply wishing you all great joy this holiday season!
Hey Friends and “Stokes Folks”,

The great thing about a live performance is that it’s...well, LIVE. The bad thing is that unlike TV and film or DVD’s, seats are limited and
you only have one opportunity to see it. If you miss it, it’s gone!
A lot of folks have been asking me when my next performance in New York City will be. Well, I’m happy
to say the answer is - April 4th, 2014!! I will be performing the concert version of my latest album “Simply Broadway”.
If you haven’t heard the good news, USA TODAY chose it as one of the best albums of 2013!
As many of you know, I am a big fan of volunteering
whatever talents you have to help others - whether it is for your country, state, city, neighborhood... whatever fills your heart.
This is one of those concerts for me - I am donating my time and
talents at this concert (along with a lot of other good folks who are helping to make this concert happen) for Hunter College Elementary school, a publicly funded laboratory school administered by Hunter
College. The concert will be given at the beautiful Danny Kaye playhouse at Hunter College.
It’s a win/win situation for me - I get to do what I love and do some good at the
Tickets have just gone on sale - get them as soon as you can because they will be going quickly! The sooner you buy, the better your seats!
I hope to see you
