Meet the Host!
Head Committee Chair and Master of Ceremonies, Charissa Wheeler, is the creator of "Burbank Singing Star" and founder of The Music Junction music schools, serving private & group music lessons to over 400 local students. "Burbank Singing Star" is a dream that Charissa formed and brought to life with the Kiwanis Club of Burbank service organization, to help showcase the many talented kids of the area and support music education. Charissa believes supporting arts education for kids is especially crucial in today's climate where funding for the arts is being cut from many public school systems across the nation. The mission of "Singing Star" is to give a voice to young talent, and help unleash their greatness for all to see - especially themselves.
