Nancy Guppy with Benicio Bryant

Benicio "Beni" Bryant, at the tender age of 14, wowed America's Got Talent judges and audiences worldwide with a spectacular rendition of Brandi Carlile's 2017 hit song "The Joke." This debut performance led Beni to the finals and snagged him a deal with AGT judge Simon Cowell's record label. The local stopped by Art Zone to chat with Nancy and also performed "Who I Am" and "Because of You."

Giving veterans a hand up

Veterans volunteering

They serve the country with distinction and honor. But once they step out of the uniform, civilian life can be a challenge to some military veterans. The program "Seattle Stand Down" helps them get on their feet - not by giving them a handout, but by offering them a hand up! To date, the organization has assisted nearly 4,500 veterans who are either at-risk or experiencing homelessness.
