Martha Wash & QSAC Partner to Help People With Autisim 11/7
Legendary performer Martha Wash and QSAC (Quality Services for the Autism Community) join forces once again for the second annual QSAC Got Talent competition! Got Talent 2 follows the success of last year's debut Got Talent competition, which raised funds towards Autism services. This year the aim is to raise both money and awareness for the Autism community. Martha Wash - who performed at last year's Got Talent competition - will be a celebrity judge for the contest, present the award to the contest winner, and treat attendees to a special performance at the contest's grand finale.
"I am so happy to be a part of QSAC's Got Talent for the 2nd year in a row," says Wash. "Last year's contest showcased outstanding talent, raised a lot of money for QSAC programs, and provided opportunities for our contestants to find further success. Many of the contestants have since performed on Broadway, off-Broadway and Tours. This year we are looking forward to even greater talent and raising the bar with donations as well."
Martha Wash is no stranger to the spotlight - the music luminary known for her powerful pipes and commanding stage presence - is the voice behind timeless classics such as "It's Raining Men," "Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)," and "Everybody Everybody" to name a few. Recent performance highlights include "It's Raining Men" with the Broadway cast of Priscilla Queen Of The Desert at the 2011 Tony Awards and a live performance for a studio audience on NPR's "Tell Me More." Wash's new single, "I've Got You" is out now.
In addition to her performance background, Martha Wash is a passionate advocate for both the arts and the autism community. As the celebrity spokesperson for QSAC, she is available for interviews surrounding this competition and QSAC's ongoing philanthropic efforts.
