Sesame Street Rocco Fiorentino Sings

Rocco Fiorentino, a blind, sixth-grade jazz singer, appeared in a 2010 episode of Sesame Street. Fiorentino has also performed with Stevie Wonder and Tony Bennett.

In the episode, Fiorentino is playing with Telly when Elmo arrives. Telly starts to describe Elmo to Fiorentino when Elmo asks why he needs to do that. Fiorentino explains that he is blind, and sings a song with the Muppets. The segment was taped the same day as one with Brendan Fraser.[1]

Fiorentino has also performed at Sesame Place as part of Cookie Monster's "Me Love Talented Kids" Weekend, May 19 to 20, 2007,[2] and at Birdland in New York City, which the Birdland club on Sesame Street was named after.
