Jon Bellion To Perform At Penn State Courtesy Of SPA

Singer, songwriter, producer, and rapper Jon Bellion will perform in the HUB’s Alumni Hall after break thanks to the Student Programming Association (SPA). The concert, which will be Friday, December 2 at 10 p.m., will be free for all students with a Penn State ID.

Bellion only recently broke into the mainstream music scene and is best known for his song, “All Time Low,” featured on his 2016 album “The Human Condition.” The album also includes “Guillotine,” and “Maybe IDK.” Spotify named Bellion its top emerging artist in 2014 and “All Time Low” topped the Billboard Emerging Artist charts.

You might also recognize Bellion’s voice from Zedd’s “Beautiful Now,” for which he provided the vocals. Bellion is also featured on Jason Derulo’s “Trumpets” and Eminem and Rihanna’s “The Monster.”

Bellion will likely be the last LateNIght performer for the fall semester. SPA has also brought Ryn Weaver and Dej Loaf to perform so far this year, as well as speakers R.J. Mitte, Gloria Steinem, and George Takei, the latter of which will speak this evening at 8 p.m. in Eisenhower Auditorium.
