Keynote Speaker | Dreion
Dreion is a recording artist, contestant on this year’s season of American Idol, advocate for foster care reform, husband, and father.
Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, he graduated from Berklee College of Music, was named “Performer of The Year” in 2019 by the Berklee Urban Service Awards, and has performed at the Grand Ole Opry, the Boston Boys and Girls Club Annual Charity Gala, the College World Series, and Gillette Stadium.

“I consider myself to be a soul therapist! My music heals, inspires, sheds light, and resonates with the deepest parts of the soul through my message of hope. My story is a powerful journey of trauma, tragedy, and triumph that the world needs to hear. My artistry brings people together to celebrate love, life, and liberty through the unifying language of music and culture.” – Dreion
