The outstanding award show was hosted by the stupendous Nick Cannon as he honored four, terrific teens for their efforts in Helping And Leading Others. The remarkable teens honored at this year’s award show were Grace Callwood, Jonas Corona, Lillian Pravda, and Chris Suggs. These four teens, along with many others as featured in Nickelodeon’s wonderful series, “The HALO Effect,” are changing lives and bringing hope and help to individuals, and they continue to motivate others to reach out a helping hand and bring out an act of kindness daily.

The award show also had many brilliant and sensational performances from some of the biggest musical acts. The one and only Jason Derulo brought his exceptional energy and chart-topping songs to the stage as he performed a medley of his hit songs. Jason Derulo certainly got everyone up on their feet and ready for an amazing night. Other extraordinary performances included Hailee Steinfeld jamming out on stage with Zedd as she performed her fantastic song “Starving” – one of everyone’s favorite songs ever! The phenomenal Daya brought even more girl-power to the stage with her performance of her awesome song, “Sit Still, Look Pretty,” – a terrific song that inspires everyone to follow after their dreams and it continues to showcase how much of a head-strong, classy, and respectable artist Daya is. The immensely talented Alessia Cara performed her awesome song “Scars To Your Beautiful” that encourages self love and motivates fans to be confident in themselves. Alessia Cara continues to be such a down-to-earth individual who is beautiful both inside and out. In addition, singing sensations Jake Miller and Jacob Whitesides made a special appearance at the renowned award show. Not only are Jacob Whitesides and Jake Miller some of the most talented and gifted musicians, but they both are so incredibly humble and they, along with all of the performers and attendees of the HALO Awards, deserve all of their successes. Multi-threat: actress, singer, and dancer, JoJo Siwa also performed her viral, anti-bullying song, “Boomerang” at the event.

Many Nickelodeon stars came out to show their support towards the fabulous award show including the cast of Nickelodeon’s music-filled show, “School Of Rock” with cast-members Breanna Yde, Ricardo Hurtado, Aidan Miner, Lance Lim, and Jade Pettyjohn in attendance.

The HALO Awards, which is created, hosted and executive produced by Nick Cannon, will be honoring the following admirable and inspiring teens at this year’s award show. (source: press release)

  •   Grace Callwood, 12, Abingdon, Md.  Grace Callwood was diagnosed with cancer at the age of seven. After gaining weight from the chemotherapy, she donated her brand new back-to-school clothes to two girls who had recently lost everything in a fire. This act of kindness inspired Callwood to start the We Cancerve Movement, Inc., an organization that creates activities to bring happiness to homeless, sick and foster children through events and donated goods. Through the efforts of nearly 2000 volunteers, We Cancerve has been able to help over 3,700 kids in need.
  • Jonas Corona, 13, Long Beach, Calif. – Jonas Corona was inspired to help others after meeting a homeless kid his own age on Los Angeles’ Skid Row. Corona started his own organization, Love in the Mirror, which provides disadvantaged youth and their families with basic necessities such as food, clothing and learning materials. Over 45,000 homeless people have been impacted by the organization’s fundraising and donation efforts.
  • Lillian Pravda, 16, New York, N.Y.– After undergoing several surgeries to correct a cataract, Lillian Pravda learned that not every child in need of eye care is able to receive it. Pravda initially started Vision for and from Children to help comfort young patients in a pediatric surgical unit, but soon grew it into an organization that supports children across the globe by providing access to sight-saving surgeries and vision services.
  • Chris Suggs, 16, Kinston, N.C. In response to the rising crime rate and education problems in his hometown, Chris Suggs created Kinston Teens, Inc. to help provide local youth with civic and community service opportunities.  Over 1300 kids have participated in Kinston Teens projects to date, which include street cleanups, voter registration drives, mentoring programs and a youth leadership summit.
