Kingston to Perform at Penn State Altoona

Rapper Sean Kingston, who rose to fame after the release of his number one hit and debut single “Beautiful Girls,” has been selected for the Altoona Spring Concert in the Alder Gymnasium on April 25th at 8 p.m.

The decision for this year’s Spring Concert, sponsored by the Campus Activity Board, was made based on the results of a campus survey in Altoona. Tanya Palovich-Scott, the assistant director of student life, said that the “CAB wanted to include all students in the decision for this year’s spring concert.” In total, students had 16 performers to chose from. According to Palovich-Scott, Kingston was the “clear favorite.”

Opening for Kingston will be God Made Me Funky, a progressive funk band from Toronto.

After releasing his second album, Tomorrow, in September, Kingston set out on a nation wide tour, which will take him well through out the upcoming Summer. He is also currently working on his untitled third album. While no release date has been set, Kingston did release a new single, “Eenie Menie,” last month, which features teenage bad boy Justin Bieber.

Tickets went on sale Monday and can be purchased in 205 Slep Student Center in Penn State Altoona. It has yet to be determined whether or not a representative will sell tickets in the HUB at Main Campus, according to Palovich-Scott.

That potential lies as much in the hands of active, informed, and opinionated students as it does in those of the profit-driven athletic departments.
