This year, in honor of the 10th Anniversary of this fabulous show, a Superhero, culled from past Heros of The Year, will be chosen. You can vote for the SuperHero on Twitter and Facebook Messenger and access complete voting information HERE.
What an incredible concept for a show. And so necessary in these difficult times. Time for everyone to eat a little humble pie because these people are truly exceptional human beings. We can learn so much by watching them. And listening to them.
Hope you enjoy the show. Comments are open for business.
