About our Guests: Ace Young is a man of many talents, and has the credits to back them up. Whether it’s building a song or a house, Ace is a true renaissance man. There is nothing he cannot do when he puts his mind to it. Even before his multiple #1 hits as a songwriter, Ace was wowing millions on TV shows like American Idol, Bones, and Half & Half. His Grammy-Nominated song “It’s Not Over” gave way to his own BMI Pop Award and many other songwriting acclaims. Ace has starred on Broadway in HAIR and GREASE, and toured the country in JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, regional theatre standout performances as Stacee Jaxx in ROCK OF AGES at Pittsburgh CLO and Radames in AIDA with Axelrod PAC, as well as honoring our military across the globe with the USO (5 world tours). He and his wife Diana’s cabaret shows reach back to their roots with their love of intimate, moving music receiving rave reviews and awards. His next chapter of artistry has him sitting in the producer, writer, and artist chairs, for his newest acoustic album Up All Night. Singer, songwriter, and full-out entertainer, from stage to screen, Diana DeGarmo has conquered it all and then some. Her powerhouse vocals set her apart from a young age and shot her to fame on American Idol, opening doors to her numerous Broadway shows, Off-Broadway Shows, National & International Tours, a recurring role on The Young & The Restless, movies, and much more. Even when the world shuttered in 2020, Diana helped create three groundbreaking virtual musical productions, forming new and exciting theatre even in the most dire of times. Diana’s solo and duo cabaret shows, with husband Ace Young, have also received national acclaim. Most recently, a lifelong dream was realized when she portrayed the iconic Patsy Cline with STAGES St. Louis to rave reviews. Her beloved country roots lend her voice to seamlessly transition through pop, theatre, jazz, and anything else her heart desires.
