TeleMiracle, “Saskatchewan’s Charity”, announced the list of 75 talented Saskatchewan performers who will be featured on TeleMiracle 45, taking place Feb. 27 and 28, 2021. Saskatchewan talent will be featured throughout all segments of TeleMiracle 45, including the “Countdown to TeleMiracle” pre-show, the Main Show and the Overnight segment.
In the Countdown show, which precedes the main telecast, Brad and Ashley Brown of Sedley are part of the lineup of performers.
In the main show, local performers include singer-musician Alfredo Aguiar of Weyburn; dancer Autumn Alexander of Weyburn; singer Breanna Bjarnason of Stoughton; singer Karissa Hoffart; singer Maraya Parisien of Weyburn, and singer Onello Bahingawan of Weyburn.
The 20-hour telethon will be broadcast live on CTV throughout Saskatchewan and livestreamed on www.telemiracle.com starting at 9 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27, 2021 and concluding at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 28. “Countdown to TeleMiracle” will be livestreamed at www.telemiracle.com and on TeleMiracle’s YouTube channel from 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. on Feb. 27.
“The performers chosen represent the depth and breadth of talent that this province has to offer,” said TeleMiracle 45 Chair Brian Angstadt. Aside from talent and a passion for TeleMiracle, performers were also chosen to represent a wide variety of communities across Saskatchewan.
Every year, Saskatchewan entertainers not only perform, they also fundraise for TeleMiracle. Once again, these fundraising efforts will receive a boost from Nutrien, which has agreed to match all donations raised by Saskatchewan Talent up to a maximum of $100,000.
More than 100 acts from across the province auditioned for TeleMiracle 45. For the first time, performers had the option this year to audition via video submissions.
