Sidney is one of the world’s leading mentalists, mind power gurus and TV entertainers. Sidney is known for his “Mind Power Show” of intuitive telepathic feats, and for his uncanny prognostication accuracy on TV news and talk shows. He is also a composer with a degree from the Eastman School of Music and a composer fellowship at the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s Tanglewood Music Festival, having scored music for commercials and television shows, along with orchestral works, songs, and recently, a musical.
Uniquely, and of great excitement to audiences, Sidney combines his music and mental gifts with a demonstration of what he calls “Music Mind Reading” where he senses the exact tunes on people’s minds then beautifully plays them on the piano.
Sidney is also highly regarded as a futurist and prognosticator. For 20 years, he has appeared on news and talk shows at New Year’s time, each year with a set of 20 to 35 predictions. His astounding overall accuracy is 73%, predicting everything from news events, celebrity news, Oscars and science. TODAY SHOW host Hoda Kotb states, “A few people are better at seeing the future than others, like mentalist Sidney Friedman. We love Sidney.” The NEW YORK POST’s Carrie Seim writes Friedman is “eerily accurate!” And FORBES magazine calls Friedman, “the mentalist to the stars” for his numerous celebrity clients. Notably, Sidney is also a best-selling author having penned MIND DYNAMICS MIND DYNAMICS (Nightingale-Conant publishers) and
YOUR MIND KNOWS MORE THAN YOU DO (Blue Dolphin Publishers), the latter of which was a national best- selling book when it was first released back in 2000, reaching #8 on AMAZON.
His books show you how to easily access the special powers of your mind for increased intuition, idea generation, and most important, WISH ACHIEVEMENT for practical use in business and in everyday life.
Performing over 110 shows and speaking engagements a year, Sidney’s clients include Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, BMO Harris Bank, United Airlines, American Express, Quaker Oats, Abbott, Merck, Campbell’s, and hundreds more, including hundreds of charitable organizations.
So how did Sidney get into this field? He answers, “Actually, it got into me.”
