NEW YORK – Broadway stars have turned to social media to showcase their talented voices using a jingle almost every New Yorker knows – our famous Cellino & Barnes jingle. Using the hashtag, #CellinoAndBarnesChallenge, actors and actresses have been challenging others in showbiz to sing the jingle and put their own twist on it.
The challenge began with “Waitress” actress Molly Hager, and has since developed hundreds of different renditions.
Many of those who were challenged to sing the jingle did so with their own spin on it, such as Hollywood and Broadway star, Madison Lagares (Blindspot, School of Rock, On Your Feet).
Other stars put together an entire performance. Fellow “Waitress” actress and Hollywood star, Katharine McPhee, teamed-up with Erich Bergen (Jersey Boys, Madam Secretary, Waitress) to sing their own version of the Cellino & Barnes jingle which has garnered over 100,000 views between the two of them.
Cellino & Barnes representatives said the viral challenge is nothing short of magical, and its origins were completely organic.
“We didn’t start the challenge, but we’re honored to be part of something amazing,” New York accident attorney, Steve Barnes said. “We’ve heard so many beautiful voices and talented individuals singing the jingle, and it’s been a lot of fun to watch.”
The Cellino & Barnes team has responded to the social media trend by challenging others to sing the jingle, using #CellinoAndBarnesChallenge. Because who knows; maybe you’ll be seen by showbiz brass and be called upon for their next Broadway show.
