Tony Award winner Jessie Mueller (Waitress) has been added to the lineup for the Third Annual Voices for the Voiceless: Stars for Foster Kids concert for the benefit of You Gotta Believe. The event, which will take place October 30 at Town Hall, will be hosted by Seth Rudetsky (Disaster!) and James Wesley (Unbroken Circle).

In addition to Mueller, performers for this years concert will include two-time Tony nominee Jonathan Groff (Hamilton), Grammy Award winner Stephanie Mills (The Wiz), Capathia Jenkins (Newsies), Willie Garson, Caroline Rhea, Melissa Gilbert (The Dead, 1904), Charlene Tilton, Janice Huff, and more to be announced.

You Gotta Believe specializes in finding permanent parents and families for young adults, teens, and preteens in the foster care system who are most in danger of aging out of the system alone. Voices for the Voiceless was founded in 2015 when Rudetsky and Wesley were working with You Gotta Believe to adopt a child out of foster care and the organization suffered major cuts from federal funding. Over the past two years, Voices for the Voiceless concert events have raised almost $1 million to support You Gotta Believe's efforts to ensure that every child leaving foster care does so with the support of a family.
