How to Watch
About the Performer
Elliott Kerman was a founding member of the a capella group, Rockapella. Over the18 years that he was the group’s baritone, they toured extensively throughout the US and Japan, made numerous records, appeared on a number of TV and Radio commercials, and were the house band on the 295 episodes of the hit PBS kids TV show “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?”
Elliott’s first love was jazz; he grew up listening to his Mom’s extensive jazz record collection. After he left Rockapella, he fronted a jazz combo for several years, performing a mix of his original compositions and jazz standards. Since then, he’s been working as an accountant in the Film & TV business.
Elliott is tremendously grateful to AnCan for all of the support he’s received through the challenging times of a Prostate Cancer diagnosis, treatment and post-treatment. The experience has been helping him refocus his priorities, working less and spending more time with the people he loves and doing the things he loves like singing, and kickbiking around NYC.
