If you had one opportunity to make your dreams come true, would you take it? Unfortunately, most people’s dreams never come true. As the saying goes, life gets in the way. We have bills to pay, children to raise and aging parents to take care of. But deep down, there’s still a flicker of that little dream.
Meredith Calcagno from Monmouth, New Jersey has been looking for the right moment to make her dream of becoming a professional singer come true, and Katie is going to help her do it. Meredith thinks she’s visiting Katie to audition for a future show about hidden talents, but she’s in for quite a surprise! Katie has enlisted the help of Megan Hilty, Broadway sensation and star of TV’s Smash, to help give Meredith her big moment.

Sometimes the inspiration and the motivation to make dreams come true comes out of unthinkable tragedy. Charlie Ebersol, co-creator of USA’s The Moment, knows that firsthand. A deadly plane crash was the moment that changed his life forever.
