Tinashe Rocks HUB With Electric Performance

A canceled flight and a little rain didn’t stop Tinashe from delivering an electric performance at Alumni Hall Thursday night.

The concert, put on by the Student Programming Association, began an hour later than expected. But judging by the reactions of her small but energetic audience, it was well worth the wait.

Performing just one day after her twenty-sixth birthday and for the first time in 2019, Tinashe energized the crowd with her powerful voice and mesmerizing dance moves. Her setlist included songs such as “2 On” and “All Hands on Deck” from her debut studio album “Aquarius,” in addition to newer tracks like “Me So Bad” and “Faded Love” from the album “Joyride.”

Another fan favorite, “All My Friends,” had the Alumni Hall floor shaking. This anthem, which features Snakeships and Chance the Rapper, skyrocketed to the top of the charts when it was released in 2015.

Throughout the concert, Tinashe had a few special surprises for the Happy Valley crowd. Besides some Drake and TLC throwbacks, one lucky Penn Stater was even asked to join her on stage.
