Martella to Virtually attend National Youth Webinar! Special Olympics National Games 2006

Vincent Martella will be attending a virtual Webinar for the Special Olympics USA National Summer Games taking place at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. Vincent will be on a national Webinar speaking to young people from all over the country via the internet on July 3rd, from 1 pm to 3 pm, Central Time. This Webinar is a special youth summit about inclusion and acceptance of people with intellectual disabilities and participants are inspired to ask Vincent about his experiences.

Martella appeared @ USF Tampa for the Special Olympics Florida State Games opening ceremony. Vincent sang the National Anthem and gave an inspirational speech to the athletes saying, "If you persevere, and believe in yourself, you can and you will achieve your goals. So remember when all of you are out there competing, you are already winners. Be brave, do the best you possibly can and have fun!" Vincent signed autographs all weekend and handed out awards to the athletes.

Vincent Martella stars as Greg, Chris' best friend and fellow outcast at Corleone Junior High, in UPN’s award winning comedy Everybody Hates Chris. This 13 year old Florida resident is currently on hiatus from filming in Los Angeles.

Vincent begins shooting his second season of Everybody Hates Chris this summer.

Everybody Hates Chris has earned Diversity, Family Friendly and Image Awards as well as nominations for People’s Choice and Golden Globe awards.
