Mat and Savanna’s uplifting song choices and smooth harmonies have inspired people throughout the world. They have a passion for using their performances for good, with a goal to SHARE HOPE & SPREAD JOY through music. The duo originally rose to prominence during the COVID-19 quarantine. Missing her music friends after the shutdown, Savanna decided to start her first social media account to keep in touch. She asked her dad to sing “The Prayer” with her for the first post, expecting only family and friends to see it; instead, the beautiful singing and loving smiles between dad and daughter went viral worldwide. Mat and Savanna decided to keep posting inspirational duets together, and have now garnered a worldwide following with over 575,000 YouTube subscribers. Their first three albums have all been #1 on iTunes, Amazon, and Billboard charts worldwide, including “Merry Little Christmas” which was #1 on the iTunes holiday chart. Kelly Clarkson called them “incredibly gifted” and Good Morning America said, “this father-daughter duo’s music is bringing hope.”
“Believe” will also feature Peter Hollens, a well-known vocalist specializing in online acapella music. Hollens has over 5 million followers and subscribers on his content and over a billion total views since 2011. Peter is also a founding member of the YouTube creator advisory board and advises many companies including Patreon, Loudr, and Tubular. He has collaborated and performed with many outstanding artists including David Archuleta, Jason Mraz, Hunter Hayes, Gladys Knight, Lindsey Stirling, and ThePianoGuys. BYU Vocal Point will also make a special appearance. This renown acapella music group combines harmony, humor, and remarkable vocal percussion into a thrilling showcase. Their signature energy and skillful performances will bring an added element of fun to this show.
