Special guest star is Moira Kelly, the voice of "Nala" from Disney's The Lion King, "Karen Roe" from the hit TV series One Tree Hill, and the star of The Cutting Edge, With Honors, Chaplin, Taken Back: Finding Haley, and others. Kelly will be singing with Jody DiPiazza, the young musical prodigy who sang with Katy Perry during last fall's Night of Too Many Stars' Telethon on Comedy Central.
Also starring is Sunda Croonquist, who was a huge hit in last year's Autism New Jersey fund-raiser. Croonquist may be seen every Wednesday night on JLTV's James and Sunda. She also hosts Mother-tainment on RadioTitans.com, and Hollywood's All Star Comedy at the world-famous Laugh Factory every Saturday night. Her other credits include Law and Order, The Today Show, The Doctors, and Oprah Winfrey's OWN network.
Performing also is Alan Grant, who has been an active writer and performer, both as a solo artist and with bands for more than two decades. His original music blends, "bluesy" rock with social and human issues that audiences all over have received enthusiastically. He has performed at major venues, including the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), Continental Arena, the Count Basie Theatre, Convention Hall, as well as dozens of national venues and clubs.
