On Sunday, March 1st, myFace hosted its 2nd Annual Talent Show – this year at Merkin Concert Hall in NYC. This show, made possible in part by generous support from The Warner Fund, provided a wonderful opportunity for a dozen of our myFace Stars – all impacted by craniofacial challenges – to showcase their talent, passion and courage on stage in front of 300 people! Some sang, some danced, some played an instrument. Each performer showed a sense of empowerment, mastery and confidence on that stage.
With their spirits strengthened, these kids knew that nothing could stop them and that they could do anything they set their mind to. Click here to see the group finale of everyone singing, none other than, “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman.
Dr. David Staffenberg, craniofacial surgeon from the myFace Center for Craniofacial Care at NYU Langone Health, served as our emcee and has known many of these patients since they were born. Sarah Cooper, rising comedian and best-selling author, opened the show with an entertaining comedy routine that set the stage for the rest of the show.
We’d like to acknowledge StinkyBklyn for donating the food and wine for the reception.
