It's been great getting people to show off their singing talents and giving them a chance to live out their dreams on stage. You can tell they're loving this unexpected opportunity
Los Angeles (PRWEB) July 15, 2008
TLC's all-new summer series THE SINGING OFFICE, will visit Robbins Brothers in an episode airing August 3 at 9 PM ET/PT, only on TLC. THE SINGING OFFICE is the most unique way to get to know your co-workers and finds hosts Joey Fatone (*NSYNC) and Mel B. (Spice Girls) searching for singers in the least likely of places - the workplace. The series premiered on June 29 at 9 PM ET/PT.
Robbins Brothers was taken by surprise when Joey Fatone showed up for an impromptu audition with its employees. After careful consideration, five people were selected to represent the entire office. The team worked together in a song and dance bootcamp to prepare for the big event - a live choreographed performance in a showdown against Mel B.'s team for a chance to make it to the finale and win the grand prize of $50,000.
The team members include:
- Cammy Webber (General Manager Fullerton store, Riverside, age 53)
- Nico Rennells (Special Orders Coordinator, Glendale, age 22)
- Mary Anne Bradley (Sales Associate, Fontana, age 23)
- Eric Estrada (Sales Associate, Whittier, age 24)
- Tracey Lyles (Media Services Manager, Inglewood, age 31)
"It's been great getting people to show off their singing talents and giving them a chance to live out their dreams on stage. You can tell they're loving this unexpected opportunity," said Joey.
"From the first day we became a team and began our journey as a 'Singing Office,' the work place has been buzzing. We talk more often, we phone one another constantly (we're all in different departments), and our co-workers are very supportive. We will always have this experience in common and therefore a bond with one another," said Cammy.
