We are pleased to announces a wonderful addition to the list of special guests joining us at the Champions Gala this year! 2013 Tony nominee Keala Settle will join the line-up at the Gala to show her support for the work of the organization and share the stage in an exclusive, one time only performance with co-founder, Clay Aiken.
Settle, a talented actress and singer, is a longtime supporter of various charities and says “I’m so thrilled to be able to celebrate with the National Inclusion Project on their tenth anniversary, and I can’t wait to finally get to sing with my good friend, Clay!”

She was seen earlier in the year in Hands on a Hardbody on Broadway, for which she received 2013 Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations, as well as winning the Theater World Award.
