This past Tuesday, we celebrated the 27th Annual Spotlight Awards with the Grand Finale Performance in Walt Disney Concert Hall! It was a new venue for our Spotlight Awards (usually held in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion,) with a new host in the brilliant Jenna Elfman, and with an added new category- Acting. We also had a new format for our grand prize finalists (of which there are two in each category) in that they all received the grand prize and this final performance was just that – a performance celebrating their tremendous talent and dedication to their art-forms. So while it felt like a year of “new things” for Spotlight, the talent in all the participants was just as inspiring and remarkable as ever!
Take a moment to meet all our amazing finalists… We can bet you’re going to see their names in programs and marquees in the future!
Here’s a quick slideshow of some of our favorite moments from the day…
