“The show can be described as a trip down memory lane,” says Hilon, who recently appeared on Women Who Work, hosted by writer and television personality Jessica Reveles on WCOBM in Hollywood.
Support for Breast Cancer Awareness
Reveles was originally drawn to Hilon’s music and later to his charitable work in support of women and breast cancer awareness. In October Hilon traveled to South Africa to perform at a breast cancer awareness fundraiser, Dress 4 Life hosted by Blue Note Events, which featured a documentary and fashion show endorsed by cancer survivor and breast cancer awareness advocate Addi Lang. Hilon serves as a celebrity brand ambassador for Lang’s Forever Changed Campaign, which provides education regarding healthcare and treatment options to women newly diagnosed with breast cancer.

“Zac is a true professional and incredible entertainer,” says Reveles, adding, “Not only that, he was a perfect fit for Women Who Work due to his steadfast commitment to causes that support and educate women. His advocacy work for breast cancer patients is admirable and essential. I was honored to have Zac on the show—and humbled that he traveled over 15 hours to tape live in Hollywood.”
“Out of the Dark” Delights Fans the World Over
Hilon’s first stop was Los Angeles, then San Diego and Las Vegas to promote his new album, Out of the Dark, available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. The Sinatra family, who endorses Hilon and Unforgettable, sponsored his appearance at It’s a Wonderful Vegas Life celebrity benefit show in support of Toys for Tots at the Tropicana Las Vegas showroom produced by Jonathan Scott in honor of Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday. Hilon recently signed a management deal in France and will record his forthcoming album in Paris starting in April of this year.
Hilon has performed for standing room only crowds across the United States, South Africa, Israel, France, Russia, Germany and soon Japan. His dynamic performances can be found on television, radio and music videos. Hilon was a featured vocalist at a tribute to Nelson Mandela and formed a band that toured throughout South Africa and opened for Duran Duran before moving to Las Vegas in 2002 where he played at the Imperial Palace and Golden Nugget.
After attending a prestigious video editing school in Southern California, Hilon became an accomplished television and film editor, working for NBC News Las Vegas, FOX 5 Las Vegas and The Food Network. He additionally spent time in Los Angeles, landing regular appearances at Universal Studios City Walk and Cabo Wabo in Hollywood.
