Willett was introduced to the world on Season 2 of The Voice. She performs frequently with her band and recently released the PanCAN anthem, Hope’s Alive. After losing her father to the disease in 2011, Willett helps raise awareness of the disease as a PanCAN Influencer of Hope.
A Kilgore, Texas native, Dustin Chafin has been featured in the New York Underground Comedy Festival and headlines regularly at premier New York City venues such as Caroline’s on Broadway, Comic Strip Live and the Broadway Comedy Club. He was once a staff writer for the Syfy channel and a contributing writer for The Chris Rock Show, Dennis Miller Live, Chappelle’s Show, and Blue Collar TV.
Chafin is also a regular on Sirius and XM Satellite Radio where he’s been featured on Jim Breuer Unleashed, Blue Collar Radio, and Howard Stern Radio.
Jimmy Shubert, who hails from Philadelphia, is considered one of the busiest comedians working today. He’s been a headliner at comedy clubs, casinos, and theaters across the country.

He currently can be seen in the movie “American Nightmares” on Cinemax and he just completed film the new movie, “Puppy Love.” His brand new hour-long special – “Zero Tolerance” – will soon be seen on a premium cable network.
Shubert’s comedy routine is usually performed with an observational point of view, in comedic short-story form, and typically focuses on poking fun at pop culture.
