Houla Entertainment NACA National Showcasing Artist Spotlight is Matthew Schuler.

Matthew Schuler took the first steps towards pursuing his dream as an artist by auditioning for NBC's Emmy award-winning competition reality series The Voice. During Matthew's blind audition he broke the record for the fastest 4-chair turn in The Voice history, which ultimately led to joining team Christina Aguilera. His time on The Voice was hailed by performances of iconic songs from Cosmic Love by Florence and The Machine and Miley Cyrus's Wrecking Ball, One Direction's Story of my Life, and most notably his rendition of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah which hit number one on the iTunes Charts and #40 on the Billboard Charts for several weeks. He was later referenced as one of the best blind auditions of all time by coach Christina Aguilera in a recap of the best moments in the past 10 seasons. Soon after his departure off The Voice, Matthew performed in a sold out show in front of hundreds of thousands, for Jamaica’s Shaggy and Friends Music Festival that helps raise funds for the Bustamante Children’s Hospital, alongside acts such as Ne-Yo and Sean Paul. Matthew also collaborated with Shaggy on a track called Lovin You, which had a limited release only in the Caribbean. Matthew has done corporate performances for major Fortune 500 companies, as well as once opening up for Diana Ross. Matthew has been apart of two major films, and been on the soundtrack for one other. He is currently finishing up his highly anticipated debut album with Transformaz Music Group set to release in 2017. 

Matthew is showcasing at NACA Nationals.

Houla Entertainment NACA National Showcasing Artist Spotlight is Brian Getz.

World-record breaking balloon artist Brian Getz began twisting balloons 14 years ago when his sister got him a simple kit for Christmas. This fun hobby quickly became an exciting career working with universities, corporations and churches. Based in Indianapolis, Brian has entertained in 14 different countries and 35 states. He has worked with schools in Uganda, entertained on cruise ships, taught balloon art in Bosnia, and been awarded at three international balloon conferences. Leaving behind simple dogs and swords, Brian’s enthusiasm and wit help him entertain children and adults alike, while improvisation and experience allow him to create any animal, person or sculpture out of balloons. In 2015, Brian broke the Guinness world record for the largest modelling balloon sculpture by a team, creating an 88-foot dragonfly. He looks forward to visiting your campus, working with student volunteers to make a giant sculpture of your mascot, then entertaining with balloons.

Brian is showcasing at NACA Nationals and will be making balloons in the Houla booths as well.

Houla Entertainment NACA Nationals Showcasing Artist Spotlight is Eh440. 

Eh440, the incredible Toronto-based vocal group has been stunning audiences worldwide since they first hit the stage a few years ago. With just a beatboxer, bass vocalist, and 3 very differ­ent lead singers, this means that they are technically an 'a cappella' group but most people think of them as something very different. 

"You forget that there aren't any instruments because they really do sound like a full band!" said one fan.

"They sound hip and current. It's like they magically fuse old and new Into a must-hear sound. And I love that they write their own songs because it makes me feel so connected to them as people.

Eh440 was named the #1 Campus Touring Artist in America by Campus Activities Magazine! They received an unprecedented perfect score from Campuses across the US. 

Eh440 have released 2 albums along with two Christrnas singles. They have also toured from coast-to-coast in Canada, the US, and Europe, with more to come. 

Eh440 will be showcasing at NACA Nationals and NACA Northern Plains this Spring.
