A cappella “social media rock star” singing sibling

During her college years at Harvard, Randi Zuckerberg, sister of Mark, sang with a cappella group The Harvard Opportunes and sings nowadays with friends from Facebook in a local group called “feedbomb.” The former Facebook exec debuts March 14 in a two-week stint on Broadway singing in the musical “Rock of Ages.”

“I am nervous and excited and thrilled!” the 33-year-old New York native said during rehearsals for the show in which she is cast as Regina, a community leader.

The musical, nominated five times for a Tony Award, is marking its fifth anniversary (and 2,000 performances) by toasting its social network of fans with a month-long celebration called #RockofAge5, from March 14-April 14. Zuckerberg, who producers have hailed as a “social media rock star,” performs with the show from March 14-March 28. (Follow her at #RandiRocks.)
