September 14, 2010 – Las Vegas, Nev. – American Superstars Producer Donny Lee Moore and Executive Producer Mark Callas proudly announce the newest artists to their Las Vegas show at the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower. Autumn Belanger & Katie Dix, two talented young singers are joining the cast as Lady Gaga and Carrie Underwood respectively. Also returning to the lineup is Johnny Potash as Charlie Daniels.
“In the spirit of keeping American Superstars fresh, our new lineup is headlined by a tribute to the glam rock superstar: Lady Gaga,” says Callas. “The biggest recording star and number one ranked friend on Facebook has taken the world by storm with a string of number one hits, blockbuster record sales, critically acclaimed concerts and a legion of fanatical fans (her “little monsters”). Now Las Vegas will witness the unbelievable talent and uniquely bizarre style of Lady Gaga on a nightly basis—on the stage of American Superstars.”
Lady Gaga tribute artist Autumn Belanger is a Las Vegas native and a graduate of the Las Vegas Academy of the Performing Arts. She has been in such productions as “FEVER” and “Scarlett: Princess of Magic.” Autumn has also modeled for Steve Madden, Diesel, and Warrior and was recently featured in Maxim Magazine’s July 2010 issue. She has also performed as other glam fashionistas such as Katy Perry, Ke$ha and members of the Pussycat Dolls. Belanger is excited to be cast as Lady Gaga and is ready to glitz it up in this long running Vegas show.
Katie brings a strong background of singing and performance to the role of Carrie Underwood, winning her first vocal performance award at the age of seven. Miss Dix was a recipient of the Thelma Ray Self Music Scholarship, a Spotlight Performance Award, and a local award for “Best Female Country Vocal Performance.” Miss Dix has performed with legendary country artist Buck Owens and many local bands. A pure country girl, Katie Dix is truly transformed into this western sweetheart on stage.
“These girls can really sing,” says Moore. “They are a great addition to the American Superstars line-up. Autumn is a must-see, she rocks the house. And Katie has amazing talent and undeniable charisma.”
Continuing with the timeless popularity of country music, American Superstars welcomes back Johnny Potash as Charlie Daniels. Proclaimed year after year as the Nevada State Grandmaster Fiddle Champion, Johnny first wowed crowds at Stratosphere with his Charlie Daniels tribute for American Superstars in 1996.
In addition, Bart Doerfler, a renowned Director and Choreographer, has also been brought in to focus the spotlight on the girls. Doerfler has created shows & choreography for Comedy Central, FOX, and the Walt Disney Company. He has also won several International Awards for shows that he has written, directed, and choreographed.
