Riley Roth, Urban Dance Troupe Entertain BJC
Singer Riley Roth and hip hop crew Urban Dance took the stage Friday night as some of THON weekend’s first live performances.
“Hippie chic” Roth began the evening with a series of covers, including “Fly” by Maddie & Tae. By the end of her performance, she had the crowd singing along with her to her original song title “You Can Always Come Home.”
At only 17 years old, Roth has had her fair share of musical experience both inside and outside of the Penn State community. Some of her accomplishments include being selected by NBC to attend the Blind Auditions for Season 8 of The Voice, as well as being named the 2012 North American Country Music Association’s “Songwriter of the Year.”
For a 17-year-old, Riley Roth sure has some pipes. The BJC is swaying. pic.twitter.com/rcl4AX3dZF

Urban Dance Troupe, an acclaimed Penn State dance group, took the stage after Roth. Audience members couldn’t help but dance along with them as they performed a routine to a mix of early 2000s hip hop classics. The crew recently snagged the title of “Penn State’s Best Dance Crew” and can keep any audience on their feet ever since.
Stay tuned for more live performances all weekend!
