The special live event will feature some of the music industry's top recording artists, as well as celebrities from the world of film, television and baseball, with special appearances from Hall of Famers including Rod Carew, Rollie Fingers, Carlton Fisk, Juan Marichal, Phil Niekro, Ozzie Smith, and Dave Winfield.
Artists in the 75th Anniversary Concert lineup include:
Twelve-time GRAMMY award winner and longtime baseball fan Paul Simon returns to Cooperstown this summer! Simon's last visit to Cooperstown and the Hall of Fame was in 2006, when he performed at Doubleday Field and donated a copy of his well-known hit "Mrs. Robinson," in which he sings of famed player Joe DiMaggio.
At 22, superstar, four-time GRAMMY nominee and CMA award-winning artist Hutner Hayes has already made his mark in the world of country music. His self-titled debut album and new album Storyline have both topped Billboard's Country Albums charts, with three consecutive singles claiming the No. 1 spot, including multi-Platinum smash hits "Wanted," "Somebody's Heartbreak" and "I Want Crazy." The Louisiana-born singer-songswriter and multi-instramentalist will perform three songs accompanied by the Boston Pops.
Juan Luis Guerra
Dominican music sensation, fifteen-time Latin GRAMMY and two-time GRAMMY award winner, recipient of two Latin Billboard Awards, and longtime baseball fan Juan Luis Guerra has sold over thirty million albums worldwide. Guerra is slated to perform his hit song, "La Llave de Mi Corazon," alongside the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra – a unique pairing with Guerra's pop style merengue and bolero.
Latin GRAMMY nominated jazz musician, four-time World Series champion and five-time All Star with the New York Yankees, Bernie Williams will bring his passion for baseball and music to Cooperstown this August. His 2009 album, Moving Forward, debuted as Billboard's #2 Contemporary Jazz Album in the country and was nominated for Best Instrumental Album at the 2009 Latin GRAMMYs.
Four-time GRAMMY award winner, four-time Dove Award winner, and Gospel superstar Yolanda Adams is the most recent addition to the star-studded Cooperstown Concert lineup. In addition to receiving recognition from Billboard Magazine as the number one Gospel artist of the last decade Adams is also the host of her own radio show, The Yolanda Adams Morning Show, broadcast nationwide. Adams is slated to perform three songs at the concert in August.
Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra
Affectionately known as "America's Orchestra," the world-renowned Boston Pops will perform alongside Simon, Guerra, Williams and Adams as the evening's house band. Arguably one the most recorded and beloved orchestras in the country, the Boston Pops perform the best music of the past and present, with a wide spectrum of styles, including jazz, pop, indie, big band, and more.
