Margot Performs at Pure Pop 2009

After having been selected from over hundreds of contestants in the United States, Margot Blanche finally performed her single 'Lonely Heart' at yesterday's Pure Pop 2009 Industry showcase at Webster Hall. Her submission was reviewed by a selection panel of multi-platinum recording artists (Jacob Underwood: O-Town / Rich Cronin: LFO), Broadway professionals (Eric Dysart: Hairspray, Chorus Line), and FM radio hosts (Dan Pecoraro: NY's Party 105FM).
