    Travelers Rejoice As Broadway's "Sister Act" Arrives At American Airlines Terminal 8 At JFK International Airport

    Customers are Invited to Enjoy Live Performances by Cast Members of Broadway's Hit Musical Comedy on May 18

    NEW YORK, May 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- American Airlines customers traveling through Terminal 8 at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on Friday, May 18, will have reason to rejoice with a special performance from Sister Act, Broadway's feel-amazing musical comedy smash.

    The Sister Act cast will entertain customers with a selection of hits inside the secure area at Terminal 8, entertaining them with the glitter and magic of the songs "Fabulous Baby," "Sister Act," and "Life I Never Led." As Sister Act's Official Airline Partner, American Airlines will host the two free performances at its JFK terminal at 3 p.m. and 3:45 p.m.

    Featuring music by eight-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors), Sister Act tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a "wannabe" diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look – a convent. Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason to rejoice!

    "American Airlines is proud to continue our support of Broadway with a series of concerts at JFK this summer," said Joann Camuti, American's Director – Sales Promotions and Community Relations for New York. "We're excited to bring the uplifting music and family fun of Sister Act to our customers at Terminal 8."
