Fans of Peslis have enjoyed her incredible talent since 2013 when she got her professional beginning when she was cast to sing the role of Anna during the world stage-premiere of the music from Disney’s “Frozen” with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. As a classically trained artist, her passion is to bring joy to people of all ages – including children and families going through illnesses at hospitals across the country with the Ryan Seacreast Foundation’s Seacrest Studios – where she’s a regular guest performing a range of songs and voices.
“I absolutely adore kids and have loved my virtual visits in several of the Seacrest Studios across the country,” shares Peslis. “Having the opportunity to partner with the Ryan Seacrest Foundation to raise awareness for the incredible work they are doing in children’s hospitals around the country, took my excitement to a whole new level!”
A portion of the ticket sales from the upcoming variety show will benefit the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, and the show will also be aired in many of the Seacrest Studios.
“We’re so grateful to Katie and her team for helping to bring the Variety Show to our Seacrest Studios across the country,” said Nicole Mead, Senior Director of Business Development and Operations for the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. “Katie has become such a champion for the work we do and has given her time to several studios by providing patients and families with virtual visits and performances. We’re thankful to be the charitable partner for this special project and look forward to seeing the smiles it brings.”
