2018 Entertainers to be announced Spring 2018
Last year’s family-friendly Festival began at 10 a.m. on Sunday September 17. Sabrina performed from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Eighteen-year-old singer, songwriter and actress Sabrina Carpenter’s journey into music, television and film began at the age of two when she followed in her older sister’s footsteps as a beginning ballerina. As her passion and skill in dance flourished, Sabrina surprised her family and friends by discovering her unique vocal talents.
Her budding acting career began in theater before moving from the stage to film & television, landing her first role as a guest start on Law & Order SVU. Subsequent roles have included Young Chloe on Fox’s The Goodwin Games and Maya Hart in the Disney Channel series Girl Meets World, which concluded in early 2017.
Staying true to her first love of music, Carpenter released her debut album Eyes Wide Open at the age of 15. Fueled by youthful exuberance and irresistibly buoyant singles such as “Eyes Wide Open” and “We’ll Be the Stars,” the album reflected Carpenter’s life over the previous three years.
With the release of her sophomore album EVOLution in October 2016, the gestation period was shorter, but clearly encompassed even more growth. Having co-written on the album, Carpenter sought to “work with people who are young and hungry — people like me.” “Thumbs,” the first single from the album, was certified Gold in August 2017.
Outside of the studio, Carpenter’s live shows reflect her boundless energy. She embarked on her first-ever, sold out headline EVOLution Tour, traveling across 35+ cities in the United States, and joined The Vamps as a special guest on their UK arena tour this May as well as Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman tour in Brazil this June before heading out on The De-Tour, her 30+ date summer headline trek. Prior to heading out on tour, Carpenter co-wrote and released her newest song “Why,” which Billboard hails as “extremely likable and highly promising of what’s to come.
Calysta Bevier is a singer from a small town in northwest Ohio. She has been singing since the age of three and has always had that desire to be in front of a crowd and to entertain. Bevier is a survivor. In 2015, she was diagnosed, at the young age of 15, with stage 3 ovarian cancer. She is currently in remission and now on a journey to take her music career to the next level. Bevier has been using her voice to inspire and encourage others by traveling and spreading awareness for cancer, specifically childhood cancer. With her story and her moving voice, she is ready to venture away from the small town and introduce herself to America!
