Sarah Darling to Perform on ABC's "Rising Star" Tonight

Sarah Darling has been a 'rising star' in her own right while signed to Black River Entertainment before ending up on her own self-released label in 2013. Now she'll appear on a new TV show tonight, the premiere of the ABC 'reality singing' program.

Sarah Darling has been announced as one of the first performers to take the stage during this Sunday’s premiere of ABC’s new series, “Rising Star.” Darling's appearance will air Sunday, June 22, (9:00-11:00 p.m. ET; check local listings) on the ABC Television Network.

“I am so excited to be a contestant on Rising Star,” says Darling. “It’s an amazing opportunity to be able to perform before the entire country live! The fans at home can make a difference for me, and I hope they all download the Rising Star app and raise the wall for me!”

To vote for your favorite performers, home judges (viewers) can download the Rising Star ABC app through the Apple App Store, Windows Marketplace, or the Google Play Store. The App is essential to participate in the voting process and is free to use. Fans can register with their Facebook or Twitter accounts.  Before each performance, fans will be asked to check-in, and then when it’s time to vote, swipe BLUE (to the right) to vote YES or RED (to the left) to vote NO. Results can then be seen in real time on television, even for West Coast viewers. In just seconds, your votes determine whether the wall rises, whether a performer moves on or goes home, or if you’re on the West Coast, whether a lucky performer gets a second chance.
