Award-winning actor, comedian, and producer Kenan Thompson, has announced that his 13th annual Young Stars 360 is conducting its talent search nationally. Young Stars 360 is a program that is designed to inspire talented youth and showcase these youth’s extraordinary talents. Not only that, but the program will take them through the nuances of the entertainment industry, enhance their portfolios, and also take their careers to the next level. To do so, Young Stars 360 will embark on a tour through 12 cities around the United States.

“As someone who has been acting since my early teens, I enjoy facilitating opportunities for others to make their dreams come true while giving back to an industry that has given me so much,” Thompson explains. “As executive producers, Cherie Chiles- Buchanan and I remain committed to helping tomorrow’s stars navigate their way to success, however, they define it.”

As a six-time Emmy Award nominee, the longest-running cast member on “Saturday Night Live”, and involved in programs like “All That,” “Kenan & Kel,” “Good Burger,” “D2: The Mighty Ducks,” “Barbershop 2”, it’s no surprise that Kenyan Thompson is the best choice to find along with elevating the next generation of stars.

The national talent search will kick off at the Hard Rock Cafe in New Orleans on April 1st, followed by stops in major cities including Atlanta, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New York City, and more.
