The night features a dazzling mix of music and poetry:

Jolie has performed in Off-Broadway shows, played the leads of Annie and Matilda as the title roles and has been seen on TV shows such as Gotham and Sesame Street as well as in many commercials. She is the co-founder of Voices to End Hunger and directs and sings in these shows to raise money for food and supplies for the food insecure in NYC.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Colin Polisano is a singer-songwriter based out of Brooklyn. Sometimes feeling sad and emotional, he transforms his life experiences into autobiographical songs.
