Jeremiah Mellen is thrilled and grateful to be returning as Emcee of Hoosier STAR. He first stepped on to the Hoosier STAR stage as an adult competitor in 2013. After winning that year, he went on to fill roles within the Hoosier STAR program including audition judge, stage manager, and co-chair. Jeremiah credits Hoosier STAR for opening doors for him, such as joining the La Porte County Symphony Orchestra as tenor, for their Cole Porter Concert, as well as taking on the role of the Beast in Beauty and the Beast, Quasimodo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Jeremiah would like to extend a warm welcome to all the contestants as they join the Hoosier STAR family and wish them luck as they pursue their dreams!
