PERFORMERS

Tate McRae

Under the watch of a stock computer camera and above a gaffer-taped-up digital keyboard, Tate McRae broadcasts un-delayed, unfiltered, and undeniable feelings straight from the heart. The Calgary, Alberta singer and songwriter transmits emotion in its purest form by way of intimate instrumentation and delivery.

 

By the age of sixteen, she quietly amassed 129 million YouTube views and a total of 90 million streams in addition to winning over fans worldwide to the tune of 1.7 million YouTube subscribers and 932K Instagram followers.

Now seventeen, as she readies more music, Tate continues to connect on the deepest level possible - just like she did when she first started in her room back in Alberta.

Listen to some of Tate's music here.

Shin Lim

Shin Lim is the 2015 world FISM champion for close up card magic and is the only person in the world to win America's Got Talent TWO times.

A self-proclaimed "sleight of hand artist," Lim admits that he is actually not a magician, nor a wizard, and has no intention of lying to the audience.

He performs carefully self-choreographed routines rather than pretending to defy the laws of physics. Combining dexterity, precision, and grace, he has distilled a lifetime of training into a devious display of dancing digits. His mind-boggling finger moves are so masterful that the audience is left to wonder what is their eyes have seen is truly possible.

Emma Benoit

It was the summer before her senior year of high school and on the outside her life looked perfect. She was a stunning varsity cheerleader with a supportive family and lots of friends, but on the inside, she was filled with darkness, depression and anxiety, and had never told a soul about it. A series of miracles saved her life, but a suicide attempt resulted in a spinal cord injury that left her paralyzed. Although extremely tragic, the incident helped her find God and propelled her on a mission to use her painful experience and miraculous recovery to help others find hope, while shining more light on the suicide epidemic that is taking so many lives and devastating so many families.
