"2020-21 was not an easy time for our arts community. Today we still find ourselves in a very similar situation," explains the competition's founder, Scott Coulter. "We created Give My Regards... as a way to give back to our own community and provide support, resources, and opportunity for meaningful and long-term mentorship opportunities," he continues. "Last year's competition, won by California actress/singer Chelle Denton, was such a success that we decided to make this an annual event. I am so excited to meet the next group of America's undiscovered talents. Last year's competition was a gift to all of us and we're excited to once again be able to give several aspiring entertainers their first big break in show business."

Last year's six finalists performed in concert at Feinstein's 54 Below alongside Broadway celebrities Lisa Howard, Klea Blackhurst, Christina Bianco, and more in an evening that was named one of the Best of the Year by BroadwayWorld. In addition, three of the finalists (D'Marreon Alexander, Veronica Stern, and grand-prize winner Chelle Denton) were named among the People to Watch in 2022 based on their performances in the Give My Regards... concert. This year it could be you!
