For the past 21 years, the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community at Penn State has celebrated Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month through an annual showcase. This showcase includes performances from various students groups across Penn State’s campus with dancing, singing, and other cultural acts.
This year’s Asian Spotlight includes 12 students organizations performing a range from a cappella, to hip hop dance, stepping, and cultural dances. Every year, the Asian/Pacific American Caucus also invites a special guest from the larger AAPI community as a keynote speaker/performer.
Our special guest for this year is William Singe, a YouTube singer of Maori descent. Starting from humble beginnings from doing cover songs in his bedroom in Australia, auditioning for the X Factor, to now finishing off his Introduction Tour across Australia, Asian, the United States and Europe.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m. in Heritage Hall TONIGHT! Check the video below to check out last year’s Asian Spotlight along with one of William Singe’s cover videos.
