"Music Mindreading" is a remarkable, captivating and inspiring feat, and a joy to experience.
Doing over 120 shows and speaking engagements a year, Sidney’s clients include Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, BMO Harris Bank, United Airlines, American Express, Jewish Federation, Quaker Oats, Abbott, Merck, Campbell’s, and hundreds more, including hundreds of engagements for charity organizations, helping ot raise tens of millions of dollars.
So how did Sidney get into this field? He answers, “Actually, it got into me.”
It began at an early age and nearly ended just a few years later. A couple days after his fifth birthday, SIDNEY FRIEDMAN mentally envisioned the location of his mom’s lost wedding ring which went missing that morning. Knowing his talent, his friends would often play a fun game of hiding a baseball among the shrubbery next to the ballpark, challenging Sidney to find it. Of course, he did, much to their delight and amazement.
On the other hand, Sidney was often ridiculed or sometimes reprimanded for his ability. One day in school, his teacher misplaced some papers. Sidney told her where they were located, but then, he got in trouble. She accused him of putting them there.
Far more harrowing, even though Sidney was humble about his gift and learned to be judicious in demonstrating it, at the age of 12 a school bully felt threatened by Sidney’s ability and started beating him up in the schoolyard. The bully was having the better of it but Sidney somehow turned it around and began besting the bully with punches. But in an instant, the bully had Sidney by the throat choking him until he could not breathe. By a miracle, some other kid convinced the bully to stop. Sidney barely lived.
The incident quelled Sidney’s enthusiasm for his gift and he never used it again until late in his college years when a girlfriend had similar abilities and inspired him to resurrect his gift.
Sidney then spent a number of years perfecting his talent, developing his confidence to perform such feats in front of audiences, and creating entertaining routines. He also figured out how to explain it and teach it to others so everyone can benefit.
It has all led to Sidney Friedman becoming a leader in his field, but what he does is not just entertainment. There is something deeper behind it.
Sidney says, “The world population recently surpassed seven billion people. That’s a lot of people with seemingly so many differences, but we all have one thing in common. Regardless of nationality, religion, race, ideology, education or any other distinguishing factor, there is one commonality among all of us. Connection. We all seek connection!! That’s why what I do is so important. When we read each other’s minds, it brings people together. It connects. It bonds. It brings us closer in deeper understanding. And what a better thing to do in a world where there are frictions, a world where we yearn for peace on earth and good will toward all.”
