Rising star Tori Kelly will sing her latest hit single "Should've Been Us," and Walk the Moon will perform the chart-topping smash "Shut Up and Dance" along with "Different Colors."

This year's four Nickelodeon HALO Awards honorees are:

· Ethan Cruikshank, 16, Mechanicsville, Va. — A guitar player since the age of seven, Ethan Cruikshank was inspired to start Music to My Ears after his school cut music education funding. Since then, Cruikshank's music program has helped over 100 kids across four states by providing free music lessons through volunteer teachers and distributing instruments to those who can't afford them.

· Riley Gantt, 15, Sherman Oaks, Calif. — Riley Gantt's organization Rainbow Pack was born out of her desire to provide kids with the supplies they need to do their homework and be successful learners, regardless of their economic circumstances. With funds raised through fundraising, grants, social media and school supply drives, she has successfully donated over 9000 backpacks filled with school supplies to kids in the Los Angeles area.

· Joshua Williams, 14, Miami Beach, Fla. — Joshua Williams' commitment to eradicate hunger started with a roadside donation to a starving man when he was four and a half years old. Through William's organization, Joshua's Heart Foundation, he designed a food distribution system in local churches, schools and community centers, and continues to raise awareness of hunger and poverty at speaking engagements. He has distributed over 1.1 million pounds of food in South Florida, Jamaica and Africa to date, and helped feed over 50,000 people nationwide.

· Ruchita Zaparde, 18, Plainsboro, N.J. — After a family trip to India exposed Ruchita Zaparde to the plight of widows and the difficulties they faced, she started Sew A Future to help those women achieve financial stability by becoming seamstresses. Zaparde identifies widows in need in India, delivers sewing machines and supplies, and connects the kids who are fundraising in the U.S. to the recipients. Over 200 families have been raised out of poverty with the gift of a sewing machine, thanks to the fundraising efforts of over 1400 students in 30 states.

"2015 Nickelodeon HALO Awards" will also feature appearances by stars from Nick's hit series "Bella and the Bulldogs" (Brec Bassinger, Coy Stewart), "Instant Mom' (Sydney Park), "100 Things to Do Before High School" (Isabela Moner), "Every Witch Way" (Rahart Adams) and "Make It Pop" (Megan Lee, Erika Tham, Louriza Tronco, Dale Whibley). The Nickelodeon stars will be put to the test in a series of in-show physical challenges that will help raise money for the organizations of the HALO Award honorees.

Now in its seventh year, "Nickelodeon HALO Awards" is an annual awards show that recognizes real-life kids that are doing extraordinary things in their communities and "Helping and Leading Others" (HALO). In addition to being awarded a grant for their organization and scholarship funds, each HALO Award honoree is given an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and connect with celebrities that share their same passion for service.
