Each year Jesse and his rescued reptiles slither into more than 150 live events. Our program is very popular with schools, churches, scouts, libraries, community events, and regularly appears on television and radio. Jesse and the reptiles have performed at the governor’s mansion, for the U.S. Congress, with Jay Leno, and at many other venues, from crowded theaters and stadiums, to more intimate gatherings within backyards and living rooms. We love people, nature, and live events, and it would be our pleasure to serve your group.

Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary is a small reptile rescue in Amish country, Pennsylvania. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a dual focus on educational outreach and rescuing reptiles.

Joel Vaughn has has a sound all his own. Daring to defy a musical characterization with his first label signed EP “Kinetic” in 2016, He pushed his musical boundaries with a sound He always wanted to create but had never tried. It was a success and that EP resulted in a Billboard top 20 hit with his first radio single “Wide Awake”.

In 2017 Joel toured the U.S. on the heels of the success of “Kinetic” and with that momentum He released his second EP “Surrender”. That release drew national attention with his single “As You Are” and also charted as a Billboard top 20 hit. The "Surrender" EP was later nominated for “EP of The YEAR” in the We Love Christian Music Awards.

Earlier this year Joel was featured in the film “God’s Not Dead: A Light In Darkness” while performing his song “Alive in Us” which also debuted on the Official Movie Soundtrack. Joel has returned with a new single “Pray It Up”, which is already running up the Billboard charts. It’s a fun pop anthem that is a simple call to prayer that reminds us of the power that comes with consistent communication with God.

Joel's new album "Control" is slated to release this fall and features the current hit "Pray It Up" as well as many other future favorites.

Spencer Kane is a 3 time award nominated and Billboard charting solo artist and FILM & TV actor born on October 26, 1996. In addition, he is the newest member of the Pop Group Anthem Lights based in Nashville.

Raised in a Christian home as a son of a Pastor, Spencer has been around musical influence in and out of the church world. His first professional recording was released in June 2011 and he has been recording in New York, Nashville, Chicago and Atlanta ever since.

His music has been described as "TOP 40" with a positive message. His fans have described his music as inspirational and the hundreds of emails he receives confirm that it has positively changed lives of the listener.

21 year old, Canadian born Pop R&B Christian artist, Sierra White has been performing music locally and in church since childhood. As a guitarist and pianist, her smooth voice includes tones and riffs like an old soul.

Sierra has been involved in music in some form since early childhood. She hold the skill to play 7 different instruments by ear with her focus mainly on guitar, trumpet and piano. Influenced mainly by mainstream Christian artists like Lecrae, Tori Kelly and Jamie Grace, she also has a passion of Gospel Music from the likes of Kirk Franklin, The Walls Group, Tasha Cobbs, and Kierra Sheard.

Leading worship at her church at the age of 17, Sierra began to seriously focus on her career path in music by releasing cover songs through Vine and her YouTube channel. Incredibly, this public release of her passion for music contradicts her introverted and quiet personality. Meeting her, you'd never think she could perform on a stage, but God had other plans and uses her unique tone and textured vocals to create a sound for the next generation of Christian youth.

Motivated by John 13:34-35, she devotes her mission in life and through music to love one another as Jesus commanded.

With a flow as unique as his message, Shopé seeks to bring the “uncompromising truth in the language of the culture”. His music has been described as honest, and vulnerable, yet bold and confident. A multiple award nominee, the Role Model Records frontman's performance credits span several premier festivals, performing alongside artists like David Crowder Lecrae, Britt Nicole, Rend Collective, and Andy Mineo, just to name a few.

His robust touring schedule has taken him across Canada, the United States, Europe and Africa. Shopé’s continued growth is a clear indication that he was fashioned for this industry. He has the lyrical prowess to write and compose songs that stir the human soul, and a stage show to match.

Despite his extraordinary talent, what truly separates Shopé are his desires and goals for his music. Quoting one of his influences, “I’m not here to impress, I’m here to impact”. Shopé wants to impact the world with the truth that has transformed his own life. With the pace he’s going, it seems likely he will do just that.
