WAPL’s Len Nelson will play his accordion in a rock/love song/parody to raise money for newVoices in the newTalent fundraiser. To donate to Len, visit www.newvoicesnewtalent.com

Make sure your Valentine’s Day plans include an evening out to see “Northeast Wisconsin’s got newTALENT” which is a new twist on our annual fundraiser. This year, area “celebrities” will compete to see who can raise the most money for newVoices by taking their talent to the stage in a live performance.

The audience will decide which celebrities bring the most to the stage! One act will win the People’s Choice by raising the most donations that evening.  Another act will win the Critic’s Choice by raising the most donations prior to the event. Every act wins by performing live, on-stage:  singing or playing an instrument to favorite selections from Broadway, the swing era, or a 50’s or jazz standard. And since it’s Valentine’s Day—we will feature love songs from the silly to the sublime. Presented in an intimate nightclub setting, the audience will also hear solos, small groups, and the full newVoices ensemble in live performance.


LEN NELSON, WAPL radio morning host who will thrill us with music from his accordion. Yes, the King of Classic Rock plays accordion!
MARK SCHEFFLER, founder of The Appleton Group, will prove he can conduct music as well as the markets and lead the choir in his own composition.
SHARON HULCE, owner of Employee Resource Group, will bring her sassy, sultry voice to the stage.
RON ALTENBURG, an accountant from Schenck, will prove that bean counters can croon.

You can support each of these celebrities by voting for them prior to the event–or attend the event and do your voting that evening! It’s easy to donate online, visit this link on our websiteTo donate to a specific celebrity, find the line that states “Please Use My Donation For:” There will be a pull-down menu at this point.
