The Garden of Dreams Talent Show is an annual event where children from various Garden of Dreams partner organizations, all facing various issues -- whether they relate to illness, homelessness, poverty, foster care or tragedy, are presented with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform on the Great Stage at Radio City Music Hall. For one memorable evening in front of their family and friends, the children perform with emotion and passion, forgetting their problems and celebrating their unique voices and talents.

In attendance were: John and Kate Oliver: Host of HBO's Last Week Tonight with John Oliver; Spike Lee: Director, Producer, Writer and Actor; Chris O'Donnell: Actor; Chilina Kennedy: star of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical; Nastia Liukin: Olympic Gold Medalist; Josh Charles: Actor, "The Good Wife"; Darryl "DMC" McDaniels: Legendary artist, GDF Board Member and Talent Show Creative Director; Carl Banks: Former Giants star; two time Super Bowl champ; Jay Armstrong Johnson: Actor, ABC's "Quantico" and more; plus more than 100 children from the Garden of Dreams Foundation.

The Garden of Dreams Foundation is a non-profit charity that works with The Madison Square Garden Company and MSG Networks Inc. to positively impact the lives of children facing obstacles. Visit www.GardenofDreamsFoundation.org for more information.
