Ali McManus, Singer, Songwriter, Guitar, Piano, Youth Ambassador for the Dick Wagner Remember the Child Fund & Shriners Hospitals: Ali McManus inspires us all to live life without limits! When you hear Ali McManus’s dynamic vocals, you’d be surprised to know her lung capacity is only 30%. Born 3 months premature, she was given a 50/50 chance to live. But this young Detroit born singer/songwriter has beaten the odds. A rare bone disorder has left Ali in a wheelchair since the age of 7. But Ali’s story is one of compelling talent and an indomitable spirit. Legendary producer Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper) produced Ali’s debut album, Unbreakable. Jack says. “She’s a natural — a true artist with old soul sensibility and a powerful message to share with the world.” Ali’s potent musical talent and personal story inspired rock star Steven Tyler to appear in her exuberant music video, Roll This Way – a joyful anthem that celebrates inclusion and diversity. In 2019, Ali was nominated for five Detroit Music Awards. In 2020, Ali was most honored to guest star twice on CBS Television’s, The Doctors TV Show, where she performed the title song from her album, Unbreakable.
