Ali McManus, ​Singer / Songwriter 

​My journey has been a series of twists and turns… and I mean that literally. Life – and my body itself – have thrown me some serious curves. But music saved my life. One song means three minutes of no pain, and I can say things with song that I can’t speak in words alone.

I don’t see myself as a person in a wheelchair. I see myself as a regular person who just happens to sit down all day. I don’t sweat the small stuff, and I believe positivity is the only way. I write songs that reflect my life, and I hope to connect with people through my lyrics and inspire with my message. Music has been my greatest healer. Through music, I have become UNBREAKABLE.

Kechi Okwubi, a finalist in "America's Got Talent" will tell us about her inspiring journey after a plane crash that killed 107 people, she and one other survived. After hundreds of surgeries, many at Shriners Hospital for Children, she was able to create beautiful music again and sang her way to the finals of AGT and the hearts of millions. Kechi will also honor us with singing the National Anthem opening the Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance.

Terry Muldoon, donating her time and talents for the benefit of the Shriners Hospital for Children in Tampa. How did it all begin? I was longing for a way to combine my love of percussion instruments, Trop-Rock music, beaches, and the tropical lifestyle. After being inspired by several steel pannists, I decided to pursue studying the Steelpan, and now the rest is history!
